Winterizing …

Posted on

… And a potato overload. Today will see our first freeze warning so I was busy covering plants. Plus, harvesting rosemary to dry.

I figured I could make some of the overload of potatoes as well.

Tonight there will be rosemary roasted potatoes on the menu.

I always have mixed feelings at the first freeze. Winter is coming, but that first freeze makes the leaves turn. The maple trees are always dramatic not long after we see freezing night temperatures. Add to that, it is the beginning of all the fall foliage events.

Back to covering my good plants. We will see how long they last.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
