Tonight is yielding our first serious freeze. By serious I mean the weather forecasters were first talking about low 40's then upper 30's. I'm pulling out the BS card to announce at 11 p.m. we were at 33 degrees F. I've planketed what I could of the garden, cut off the waterers, rolled down the canvas protectors for the chickens and will now sit and wait to learn what tragedy greets me in the morning.
So, I've played with a few new recipes this week, got some great new plants started and will now hope for the best in the morning relative to my gardens and infrastructure. I appreciate the laws relative to building audiences in the blogosphere, but sometimes Mother Nature steps in and decides to play the house rules to her advantage and preempt the best of plans I may have been contemplating for myself,.
