Last night, I came out of the house to find I had an audience, watching me. 🙂 Very attentively! When I came out this morning to refill their food containers, Braveheart came running right up to me - but not enough to let me pet her! 😀 Her brother, on the other hand, actually let … Continue reading A bit more kitten progress!
While I was working in the yard during the day, I saw Butterscotch, but not her kittens. So it was a lovely surprise when I was doing my rounds in the evening, and saw what turned out to be the little calico. On the landing in front of the main entrance! Unfortunately, I startled her … Continue reading A happy sight!
What a difference a day makes! This is how the crab apple juice looked, right after we got finished setting up the fermentation. This is how they looked this morning. The photo does not do justice to how bright the colour is! When I was checking these last night, the tops were full of dense … Continue reading Hard crab apple cider: Getting clear
That first seed head that opened is getting pretty big! Quite a few more are starting to show yellow petals. It's nice to see more reaching this stage. I have no convenient way to measure, but I'd guess the tallest ones are reaching the 8 foot range. The heights are all over the place. Of … Continue reading Here comes the sun
The bitty, baby birdhouse gourd has getting bigger! 🙂 August 31September 2 Still a baby, but it's getting noticeably more heft to it. 🙂 Some of the other gourd plants are blooming. I wonder how big these guys would have been right now, had they not been hit by the one night of frost? The … Continue reading A different baby
Today turned out to be actually chilly, for a change. Also, a bit on the damp side, with the odd bit of rain here and there. Which made it the perfect day to FINALLY get a burn done. I set this ring up last year, so we could burn away the scrap and rotted wood … Continue reading Finally doing a burn, and getting cuddles for my efforts
Last night, I was able to spend some time on the log seat near the junk pile, and work on getting Butterscotch's kittens used to human interaction. I saw all four were out when I was heading to the nearby garden beds, so I left the garden for later. They all ran off, but after … Continue reading Butterscotch baby – progress!
Last night, a massive storm system passed over us. In parts of the province, there were tornado warnings. Here, we had rain. Finally. It started to rain somewhere around 2am, and didn't stop until about 7am, and we might still get more, later. For all the watering of the gardens we've been trying to keep … Continue reading Resilient
Over the past while, I've been adding another coat of Plasi Dip to the ends of the picnic table legs. I stopped adding more coats yesterday, but have continued to spray the cracks in the rain barrel. Basically, I plan to empty that can on those. 😀 This is about 5 or 6 coats. I … Continue reading Picnic Table Progress
I realized I've neglected to take progress photos of some of our garden beds, so I got a few this morning. Here are our two potato beds. I was shooting blind, because my phone's screen went completely black in the sunlight. Still, you can see the potatoes among the mulch, separated by a path of … Continue reading How does the garden(s) grow?
