“Last night, there came a frost, which has done great damage to my garden … it is sad that Nature will play such tricks on us poor mortals, inviting us with sunny smiles to confide in her, and then, when we are entirely within her power, striking us to the heart.” — Nathaniel Hawthorne
The cold has descended! Killing everything. Next week I will start digging my tropical plants and storing them for the winter. I have so many tubers of Cannas I really don’t know what I’m going to do with them, but I guess I will figure it out.
Most of everything I will leave as seed heads for the birds, it helps them and it helps my pocket book.
The trees and bushes should really start to color up now. It always takes a good hard freeze to start to see color on them.
In three weeks we hope to start the corn harvest.
We are moving marching forward to winter, a steady step-by-step now.
Taking one day at a time, your friend,
