It didn't surprise me, but this morning I headed out for work and found my car windows were frosted over. This makes the second light frost we've had this year. One back in mid November and another today. I haven't had light to see how my garden is doing, but I just bet it's humming along fine. Tomorrow I'll get out there and see for myself. Hopefully I'll play with my kids out there as well. I haven't spoke to my folks on any schedule for this weekend, but I'm still sick so I hope it's light.
Today was interesting at work. I scrambled to get stuff done so I could take a half-day off to spend our annual day wandering around downtown seeing the lights and the art displays. For years they had local artists decorate 6 foot tall fiberglassish nutcrackers. The kids adored them. It was great running around finding them on corner after corner. So creative and fun. This year all they did was shape christmas-lights around metal frames into shapes. Cute but very industrial. Ah well, we didn't get very far. We were too sick. So they went home and I cut my vacation short and went back to work. I left around 6 and boy was that a mistake. Traffic was the worst getting out of town.
The only good part about a 2 hour bus ride is I got a ton of reading done. Now I know all about how to build all sorts of hoop covers, cold frames and greenhouses. The most complicated of which is a mobile greenhouse on tracks that you can use to jump start spring veggies, boost summer production, and winter garden all in adjacent gardens along the path. Interesting, but useless to me. And have you ever tried to figure out a complex process just by reading how to do it? Not the easiest thing to do. Anyway, I'm hoping now that I get into something more useful.
Enjoy your garden!
