I could never live in the South, and certainly not in the Tropics.  About this time of year, despite the abundance of peaches, beans, tomatoes, squash, garden flowers, etc… I start thinking about the cleansing qualities of a good hard frost.  That veggie bed with the slight pong of decaying vegetation? Clean!

I can’t imagine having to deal with bugs, humidity, fungi, and all that ilk year round.
