Well, it was to be expected. Thanksgiving was coming up quick and the average first frost here in Fort Worth is the 15th of November. It happened on the 13th this year. We got a frost/freeze warning on the news last night (Monday) so I brought the orange tree inside and covered the tomato plant that is residing in the greenhouse. Other than that, everything else was fair game.
I was ready for the catastrophe. Bring on winter. Let the garden dirt rest and recover. Kill a few pesky bugs. The wild chives in the middle of the yard. The crunchy dormant grass in the mornings. The cozy couch with yarn and crochet hook in hand.
