When That Frost Hits

We had our first frost of fall a few nights ago. The elephant ears (orejas de elefante) were obviously not going to make it. Most people dig up their bulbs, store them in a dry box, and replant them in the spring.

I’m lazy about bulbs, so I cover them with leaves and hope to see their return in the spring. Last year my method worked. I was given a bunch more bulbs this year by my neighbor, who had stored them. They grew great and are now covered with leaves along with my original set.

Poor things. Lol. They’ll be back though, I feel certain.

I'm just a skinny girl with a lot of hair and a couple of stories. I'm 26, married, and have two very active, sparkly-eyed babies. My mother lives with me so I've got my best ally and source of wisdom here, too. Everything I do is for my family. We like to garden, paint, start projects, read, and watch a little bit of Netflix. I'm working on my cooking, parenting with patience, and learning how to love life where I'm at. Though I've abandoned my degree three times in two different states (yes, I said three times), I have listened and watched and picked up a couple of tips. Most of what I write is entirely non-fictional because I let life spin the tales. I'm ready to learn more and am excited to meet others on the same path. This is to serve as a record of what I've done. All pictures have been taken by me, unless otherwise credited.
