It's been a while since I've posted a picture of Ginger! Every morning and evening, at the sound of me getting my vitamins from my night stand, Ginger comes running for cuddles! This morning, I actually had a free hand to get a photo. 🙂 I don't know why he has decided "pill bottle rattling" … Continue reading Morning cuddles
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
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
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!
Part of my morning rounds has been to check the garden beds for deer (or other critter) damage. Since we lost several Mongolian Giant sunflower transplants, there has not appeared to be any more damage in that area. In the main garden beds, there has been little more than a few spinach that the row … Continue reading Captured!
I tried to do another post last night, but simply could not load the WordPress editor, our internet was so crappy. My husband tells me it was working fine when he got up at 2am, which suggested that their system was overloaded, on top of the weather wreaking havoc on our signal. Satellite can only … Continue reading Furry things, pretty things and growing things
Today has been another day of rain and high winds. After today, we're going to be back to high temperatures and sun. My Weather Network is forecasting 37C/99F on Wednesday! I think that must be some kind of typo, because I'm not seeing that anywhere else. The highest I'm finding is on my phone's app, … Continue reading Making things
Gosh, it was so lovely to do my rounds this morning! It has finally cooled down (for all the rain we had yesterday, it was still hot and very muggy!), and as I write this, it's a lovely 17C/63F outside. There is the possibility of more rain, then things are expected to get hot and … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: progress, and some mysteries
