Stumbled across a link to an excellent synopsis of frost and its effects via @urbangarden. If you don’t have a copy of A Gardener’s Guide to Frost, this is the next best thing.

Fantasy makes all gardens grow. Without it you may have yard, plot, park, grounds, but you lack the essential ingredient of garden, the element that seizes the imagination and transports or envelops you into a world invented by the gardener.

Thank you for reminding us in Southern California that we love the crops that come from frosty climates- but living in the land of orange trees- we should not complain so much about the weather.

No, no, I’m trying to ignore frost and hope it ignores my garden for a few more weeks! The dahlias are finally in full bloom and need more time before they RIP :-)

I went out to Amazon and snatched up a copy of the Gardener’s Guide to Frost after reading about it here the other day. Larry is ripping through it and we have have visions of all sorts of frost-beating strategies in our heads now. Thanks!
