From Garrison Keillor: “Cheer up. Make yourself useful. Mind your manners. Avoid self pity.”

It is a bit challenging to come up with gardening comments after a couple of major blizzards. Bear with me.

Don’t get me wrong. I could not be happier, personally, for our non-winter. We have to admit, however, it is rather odd.

I picked up a hitchhiker last Friday morning while driving down my extremely long dirt road. His name was Jay.

I thoroughly enjoyed last weekend’s storm. I was able to pick quite a bit of food from my garden before the snow started.

It finally happened. Winter is upon us. I admit I was happily going about my fall chores as if nothing would ever change.
