After hauling to many loads of soil over the rough, rough ground, none of us were up to doing it again today. So our Sunday remained a day of rest! We did still go out to soak down the beds we are working on, though, along with other watering and checking of things. There is … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: seed planning, a furry mushroom, and oops!
Normally, this would be a Critter of the Day picture post. We've been getting so busy with the outside work while the weather is good, I haven't had a chance to go through my photos to choose which are worth posting. So we'll be taking a bit of a break. Critter of the Day will … Continue reading Critter of the Day break
Before I get into my topic, here's a Ginger picture for you to enjoy! I interrupted his nap! 😀 Such a sweet baby boy he is! 🙂 Now, onto less fun stuff. I mentioned in my last post about our garden progress, that I'd showed photos of the pea beds to my mother. As expected, … Continue reading Never quite good enough, and bigger concerns
Our first direct sown seeds are in! This morning, I got the peas planted in their new beds. I also added our first line of defense against birds and deer: flappy, noisy grocery bags. As soon as we can, those will be replaced with whirligigs, wind chimes, flags, flashy things - whatever we can find … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: peas are in, and other progress
I am curious as to how this deer got so damp all over like that, but his mother wasn't.

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
