Life on an city smallholding wherein we grow kids, critters, and an ever increasing DIY repertoire.
I looked out the window today and saw what I would consider to be our first hard frost. I have actually been waiting for a hard frost because my hope is that it will kill the mosquitoes outside. I haven't been able to put the gardens to bed because the mosquitoes have been so bad. I know that this hard frost means snow is coming and that I will soon wish I had heated auto seats. Putting the gardens to bed for the winter isn't a big project but it isn't easy if you are being chewed up by bugs. Now I hope to be able to get the work done without ending up covered in bug bites.
