Today was nowhere near as productive as I intended it to be. Ah, well. I headed out early in the day to the nearer small city, to pick up a few things we couldn't get during our big city trips. The first stop was Canadian Tire, where I was able to get more of the … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: filling the gaps
I just couldn't resist getting a picture of Saffron and Ginger, enjoying a sunspot together. Saffron did not appreciate my interrupting her nap! 😀 The Re-Farmer
The crab apple trees near the old garden area are starting to bloom. Not all of them yet, but this one was looking gorgeous, today. 🙂 This morning, after all the garden beds were watered, my older daughter and I got to work on the corn and sunflower blocks. She started by making furrows for … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: direct sown corn and sunflowers, done!
While doing my morning rounds, I made sure to check the tulips. Nothing has been showing up on the tulip cam, trying to get at them again. There are files of cats passing in front of the camera, and one of a skunk running along the lilac hedge, as if something had startled it, but … Continue reading Morning Mysteries
Once again, our temperatures have lurched from one direction to the other! From days cold enough for the furnace to turn on, and overnight lows below freezing, we're back to the heat. It's past 7:30pm as I write this, and our temperature is still at 24C/75F. A week from now, we're expected to hit 31C/88F. … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: beans are in, and first spinach protectors
Today was one of those days that went all over the place! So this is probably going to be a very disjointed post! 😀 One of the first things I wanted to get done this morning was to call the RCMP, as advised by my lawyer, about the gunshots from our vandal's property. For non-emergency … Continue reading This, that and the other thing
Last night, our temperatures dipped to -5C/23F. I'm not sure what to make of that, though. When I checked my app during the night, it said it was snowing, so I opened the garage cam app to see. Snowflakes are lit up by the infrared flash. There was no snow. I checked the weather radar, … Continue reading Monthly shop half done, and is it dead?
Setting the trail cam on the saw horse did work; several files were captured. First, the good news. Nothing was eating the tulips last night. The camera did catch a few critters, though. I took some screen caps from the videos. There was only one night time file, and it looks like the first definitive … Continue reading Tulip cam’s first pictures
Well, I'm certainly glad I decided to switch memory cards on the trail cam over the tulips after I finished my last post. With this camera, if it happens to be recording when I pull out the memory card, I have to manually turn it back on again after putting in the new card. This … Continue reading Testing, testing!
We had a cold, wet night last night, and this morning, all of the outside cats where there to greet me. Even the shy ones! Ghost Baby, in the back, is the shiest of them all, still. We still don't know if Ghost is a he or a she, but if it's a she, she … Continue reading Morning kitties – and morning carnage!
