The day has come. The weatherwoman says so. Today is the eve of the first light frost. The difference between a light frost and a hard freeze is a matter of seven degrees Fahrenheit and then how long the temperature is sustained. A light frost is below 32 F and a hard freeze is below 25 F for at least four hours.
With the moon also waning, this is a good day for the third Fate's work as the Cutter -- gathering the rest of the green tomatoes, collecting herbs, and cutting bouquets of flowers. This is about the only time we have an abundance of flowers in the house. I love old-fashioned green vases. Since florists have turned to painted glass, they're hard to find.
