I am envisioning this to be a collaborative blog amongst gardeners in cold climates, especially hardiness Zone 4 and colder. People I plan to invite include Bub, Innes, my sisters, the Adirondack gardener, the owner of northerngardening.com, the Suite 101 Northern gardener. This blog would be a part of my website, which will also list books about cold climate gardening, links, resources, etc. I’m also going to have a section on North Hill and the writings of Winterrowd and Eck, also a listing of upstate New York nurseries. I also want to have some of my writings with photos. Maybe a link to a photo album.
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.
