While cleaning up after working on the low raised bed, I noticed a new addition to our found-object "art" display. It's a snoozy Rolando Moon! The cats really love this table I dragged out of the bushes. 😀 The Re-Farmer
You can read about the first raised bed I did, here and here. Things were done a bit different this time, so here is another step-by-step post with lots of photos! 🙂 I actually started this bed over a week ago. This is how it looked then. This bed has been almost completely untouched since … Continue reading Second low raised bed: done!
I was rather pleased with this morning's harvest! I am just amazed that we still have beans to pick, this late in the season! Even a single yellow bean. 😀 If the mild temperatures continue, we will be getting more yellow beans, too. There are new beans growing, all over the row! From what I … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning in the garden, and first lettuce!
Sometimes, when I am awakened by cats using me as a bed, the only way I can tell which cat has trapped me is by taking a picture! Especially when I've got one or two more of the on my chest. 😀 Apparently, Tissue finds my legs make a perfect hammock. 😀 While I was … Continue reading Morning kitties; trapped! Also… who is that?
When I did my morning rounds, I didn't harvest anything, as there didn't seem to be any need, yet. Then I did my evening rounds, and found that a lot can change by the end of the day! Spoon Tomatoes (and Potato Beetle)Mosaic Medley tomatoes As you can see, the tomato plants are dying back, … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: evening harvest
When I placed our order for fall garlic, I also ordered a pack of seeds for next year's garden. It felt kind of weird to order just one pack of seeds. Especially since the garlic will be shipper later, when it's time to plant them in our zone. This is a variety of tomatoes my … Continue reading Our 2022 garden: chocolate
There's nothing like heading outside to do my morning rounds, and being greeted by so many kitties! It's going to be hard to tell those tabbies apart. 😀 Ghost Baby even made an appearance this morning. She is very shy and skittish, so I didn't try to move any closer to get a photo. My … Continue reading Ghost Baby appears, and that’s a LOT of dill!
I just got back from doing my evening rounds. The kibble trays were empty, so I had a whole crowd of kitties hanging around the sun room door. Even Rosencrantz was there this time, and she let me pet her. Nosencrantz let me pet her, too. The surprise, however, was when I saw an orange … Continue reading Look who’s back!
Today is likely to be the last hot day of the year. As I write this, we are currently at 26C/79F, with the humidex at 30C/86F. We are expected to reach 28C/83F with the humidex making it feel like 31C/88F. We are supposed to get a couple more days in the mid to low 20's … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: still growing!
Would you look at this adorable face! Yes, Nosencrantz allowed me to pet her again this morning! She still won't let me walk up to her to pet her, but only lets me pet her at the food tray, but she doesn't quite run away, either. Elevator butt. 😀 Gosh, she looks so much like … Continue reading Kitty noses
