Lazy man's stew, container garden, coldest place

Daily Newsletter for Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Then welcome, cold, welcome, ye snowy nights!
Heaven midst your rage shall mingle pure delights.
And confidence of hope the soul sustain,
While devastation sweeps along the plain:
Nor shall the child of poverty despair,
But bless the Power that rules the changing year;
Assured, though horrors 'round his cottage reign,
That Spring will come, and Nature smile again
.
–Robert Bloomfield (1766–1823)
