Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

First Frost

Yesterday (Sunday) we woke up to the first frost of the season. Granted it was a light frost - but I couldn't pretend it didn't happen. Later this week we might even have a "wintery mix!"

Drat. It was real.

This little sunflower was the last man standing. It finally gave up the frosty ghost. 

The cosmos reaches for the sun, eager to get out of the cold shade. 

I think this little zinnia may have made it.

In the next couple days I need to make sure I take up the last of the peppers, apples, and pears. If we really get a rain/snow mix... or actual snowflakes... we also need to make sure we bring up all the firewood from the woods. It's going to be a busy couple days.

Happy Monday everyone - have you had a frost yet?

We are expected to have snow flurries this week. :( But today was gorgeous with the spectrum of fall colors, the crisp breeze, and the scent of autumn.

No frost here in SW France yet. Still sunny and warm. But thermal underwear at the ready because soon we shall be needing them! Hope you are ready with your winter undies as well!
