An early morning peek into the pumpkin patch shows the deer fence frosted with hoar, similar to lickable frosting on a cake. Hoar frost happens when the temperature of objects, in the night, falls below the air temps. The moisture in the air then forms crystals on the surfaces of every thing in its path. Hoar frosting transforms a garden skeleton into ghostly patterns. Enjoy!
Living in the country, growing some of our own food and sharing the bounty with others at the farmers' market has become my passion. Returning a bit to a time when my Gramma Hazel introduced me to her 2-acre garden has renewed my appreciation for living simply: sewing, knitting, crocheting, cooking, and writing about the good life, rurally.
