Last night, the temperature dropped to its lowest this winter. The ground has been frozen for more than a week now and it has not rained. The frozen dry ground around the shed has stopped me from burying my accumulated kitchen scraps.
On another note, I have started reading De Opstand van de Natuur by Philipp Blom. Heck, I never thought that the history of a small ice age in Europe circa 1570 – 1700 would be this captivating. Frozen grounds, bitter winters, what are the odds?!
