But luckily the ground wasn't cold enough to let it stick. However the cold frames over the garden are covered in ice right now. We're going to need to grab whatever we can get from the garden, because it's not going to last long. Green tomatos will need to be pickled. Squash will need to be put up in storage or canned. Carrots? They can stay in the ground until we're ready to pull 'em. Thank goodness we already harvested most of the herbs before the cold killed them.
And Al Gore, aka Pope Prius the First, can kiss my ass. We're running the furnace right now. The dog started growing her winter coat IN AUGUST. This is going to be one hell of a cold year.
