First Frost

frost on the grass

       Today we had our first frost. It was only mild, but the rest of the week is supposed to be in the 30's at night. It's time to start winterizing the garden. This weekend, I am going to get some dirt to put around the roses and a few of our other sensative plants. When the leaves fall they will be better insulation, but this is a good start. The frost tells the plants it's time to stop growing and go dormant for the winter, so after two good frosts, I also do my final trim on the plants around my yard.
