Oh, I'm going to be in for a world of hurt, tomorrow. It's going to be worth every bit of it! 😀 But first, I have to show off the little Crespo squash baby! I got this photo last night. This is how it looked, less than 24 hours later. Then I checked it this … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: Crespo squash, and pea beds ready!
The deer had to do some digging to find the feed, buried in the snow!
Ginger has been so active, it's been hard to get pictures of him! I finally managed to catch him while napping. 🙂 He earned that nap! He spent much of the day, running around and batting at a cat toy. He clearly has adapted well to the loss of his leg, but being able to … Continue reading I got Ginger pics!
A while back, the girls and I decided to create a bed in an unplanned area. Today, things got pleasant enough outside that I quickly finished part of it. This is the side that will have the Strawberry Spinach planted. These can be successively sown every two weeks, starting before the last frost date, so … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: quick finish on the unplanned bed
This morning, we had snow coming down with flakes so big, I could see them without my glasses! 😀 They even triggered the motion sensor on the security camera during daylight. That happens all the time at night, with the infrared flash (and I wake up to hundreds of emails with images of snow or … Continue reading Snowy morning
It's always interesting to watch the deer when they are on alert, and those loooong ears are constantly moving around.
Wow. It's coming up on 10pm as I start this, and this is the first time I've had to sit down for most of the day! Today was our monthly shop, so after doing my rounds, my younger daughter and I headed out to the city. We were going to do our usual shop when … Continue reading Our 2021 garden seedling shuffle, monthly shop, and man that’s bright!
It's the end of April as I write this. The next few photos I'll be posting were taken in the middle of the month, just after we got a significant snowfall. What a difference a couple of weeks makes! And what a face this young buck is making! Not too keen on having to dig … Continue reading Critter of the Day: What’s that face?
We had a beautiful warm day today - prefect for working outside! Our peas are among the things that require the most preparation before we can direct sow them, so we decided to focus on building trellises for them. After looking over some design ideas, drawing some sketches and making some decisions, I headed out … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: building the first pea trellis
While doing my rounds today, I brought out one of our black tarps and headed over to where we will be planting the Montana Morado corn. None of our corn can be planted until well after our June 2 last frost date. Covering this area now will give us about 5-6 weeks to kill off … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: killing grass, and first one!
