I got to see the kittens again this evening, but this morning, I had quite the critter surprise! To top up our potato grow bags, I headed to the outer hard with the wheelbarrow, with the tools needed to rake up some grass clippings for much, and get a load of garden soil from the … Continue reading Some critter surprises
This morning, it was time to add to the potato grow bags. They were topped up with a mix of grass clippings and garden soil, and the bags were unrolled a bit in the process. Some of them look like they could have done with more, but I must say, it was pretty awkward to … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: “hilling” potatoes
After yesterday being such a crappy day, I'm happy to say that today was much improved! This morning, I found several bright bits of sunshine in the garden. Several of our summer squash blossoms are now fully open! There are just male flowers right now, so it's still too early to expect baby squash, but … Continue reading A much better day today, and what will I do with these?
Today, we finally saw Butterscotch's kittens! They were in the junk pile by the house. Her favorite kitten spot. Whether they've been there this whole time, or if she recently moved them there, I don't know, but the girls spotted them today. There are four of them. My younger daughter had gone out to check … Continue reading Butterscotch Babies!
You know the kind of day. The kind where things start going wrong from the start, and nothing goes to plan. Today was one of those days. Thankfully, it ended on a more positive note. Things started very early, with hearing noises from the basement and discovering Saffron had somehow found her way into the … Continue reading One of “those” days
Nope. I can't. Because I'm a suck. When we find the skunks in the kibble house, we have been chasing them away with the hose. Today, I went out to do the watering and saw a couple of skunks. One immediately ran off and I saw it head under the storage house. The bigger one … Continue reading I can’t do it anymore
While doing the morning watering, I noticed the grapes have babies! The teeniest of bunches of baby grapes are now visible. 🙂 Doing the watering this morning was a bit of a challenge, as we were having some pretty high winds. High enough to blow the water all over the place. 😀 As always, I … Continue reading Baby grapes and… what’s our forecast???
Today was set to be a scorcher, so when I did my morning rounds, I took the time to water all the garden beds before things got too hot, even though they got a thorough watering last night. When I got to the spinach beds, I saw evidence of skulduggery! The sacrificial spinach, at the … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: squash tunnel, day 4, and sacrificial spinach!
The wonderful rains we've had has meant everything has exploded in growth. Including the grass and weeds. Today, I decided to break out the weed trimmer and get around some areas before mowing. In progress, I figured I would keep trimming some other areas. Just the rougher areas, I told myself. I'll do the rest … Continue reading Just a trim…
Before we converted the big aquarium into a greenhouse, it was used to store our collection of baskets. They got moved to the top of the piano, and ended up just staying there. This is partly why. The cats discovered they fit perfectly, as Big Rig is demonstrating in the most adorable way. This is … Continue reading The cuteness..
