The first day to scrape frost from the windshield. Isn't global warming wonderful! I have not missed this little chore at all. The big russet potato is there to remind us that some good things come with the disapearance of all those warm days. It was sooooo nice not to need shoes or even a jacket. But harvest time is almost over, and now for putting those big bakers in their tanning bed so we can plop on the sour cream and black pepper. The other great thing about frosty weather is NO MORE GARDENING! At least weather around here is not boring.
