Chilling tale of the good work done by Jack Frost
. The Vikings depicted Jack Frost, named "Jokul Frosti," as an elf-like deity who traveled from place to place painting frost onto fields while people slept. Fruit-bearing plants that are commercially grown in our area require hundreds of "chill hours" to break their winter dormancy and to begin their fruit-making cycles.
