It’s all fun and games until the first snow comes.
On Saturday morning I dismantled the tiny garden. Tomato vines, pepper plants, and the last of my zinnias were pruned and pulled and dumped. I tore out plants that I had months before lovingly planted and tended. I pulled out the very vine I spent countless mornings defending from squash beetles; the vigilant destroyer of insect eggs and blossom rot, the crazed inspector of leaves. I watched as it filled the yard waste bin and then some. I watched as the jungle became a barren patch of dirt. It was over in an hour. -
It’s hard to see all that work end up on the curb and it’s harder still to look at all the empty pots that once held such color and life. But all things come to an end. Without endings, we’d have no new beginnings, no fresh starts. It was bittersweet work to bring the garden to its “end”, but also thrilling in light of the potential. This garden is done, but something else is on the horizon. Something new and unknown. Change is in the air.
There are a million tomorrows. A million chances to turn things around, to experience something new, to grow. Each day is a new beginning, ripe with potential. We learn and we adapt with each passing day—and we’ll never be the same person we were the day before. How wonderful it is, to begin again. “It isn’t too late. Time is not running out. Your life is here and now. And the moment has arrived at which you’re finally ready to change.” - Cheryl Strayed

Iced zinnia to prevent death 💀 by frost. A seemingly contradictory choice, yet it saved some of our zinnias! Here’s a better explanation from @johnnybroadturn: “Iced zinnia saved from dying via frost by irrigating them. The ice protects the plant from the frost which is somehow colder.... it was an experiment on avoiding a first frost. The iced zinnias looked fine later in the day. Of course in another day or so it’ll be regularly below freezing temps, so it’s not worth it for the long term.”
