I've been struggling to write this week even though the topic at hand is obvious: how the garden is doing after a foot of snow and the extreme cold of the polar vortex. So I've decided to give myself a break and push it off until next week. Don't worry, the effects of the cold will still be apparent next week.
You see, my heart feels heavy over the loss of a dear friend. Ginkgo, the orange cat born at Ginkgo Gardens who welcomed customers his entire life, has died of old age. He was 18. He was an amazing cat.
