In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

I love the look of your rustic looking pizza. Eating what you (or your gentleman farmer) has grown is so much part of the fun of summer.

I need to start stockpiling pesto so I can make pizzas like that. Yum!

It doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Is there anything as good as fresh food?

Kathy, I’m so glad you played along! That tomato-pesto pizza looks absolutely delicious! I’m happy the Gentleman Gardener wasn’t disappointed by late blight this year.
