Oh, Wisconsin

The weather changed here, and suddenly we were expecting a frost.

I was like ‘I’ve got this’, and I pulled out the clear table clothes I ordered, the plastic hoops, garden stakes, and a hole punch.

I trundled outside and carefully covered up all of my plants during the warmest part of the day. I tucked all the edges down, punched holes for the stakes, and staked them in place.

Then I went inside and went on with my day.

The next morning, I went to check on them, and SOME VILE CREATURE pulled up one corner of the covers, letting frosty air in and killing all the plants closest to that opening.


Some days, there is no winning. I’ll have to go to a green house and pick up plants to replace them, but these plants had been MINE from seed I sewed.

I’m bummed, to be honest.
