Wow I cannot believe that it is Friday again already. This month is just flying by too fast for me. Last night I told Mr. Pickles that it was almost 3 months till Christmas...he told me to shut up..Lol
I have to get through my birthday at the end of the month...the Big 30 on the 30 first, then Thanksgiving the next week-end after that and Halloween before I can even start to think about Christmas! We’ll that is a lie I am obliviously thinking about Christmas already since I am typing about it. Let just say I am not ready for the weather that goes with the holiday season more than the holiday season!
Today it is only 12C and it is raining. I was hoping to get out in the garden and haul away everything that I had pulled out. However, that is going to have to wait for another day.
Yesterday I did check the sunflowers to see if I could harvest some sunflower seeds. Only one was ready. I have been soaking the seeds in salt water and soon I shall be roasting them in the oven. I have never done this before, so I am hoping for the best!
I used the last of my cucumbers last night to make fridge pickles. I would say that more than half of them were too yellow to use so they will end up out back. I feel bad about that, however no one wanted them and we are just pickled out here. We have been looking for another fridge, but I still cannot rationalize spending 500+ for a new fridge just to hold fridge pickles and carrots! There are a lot of older ones online that we could buy and put in the garage, However I hear that they can really jack up the power bill so I am not really interested in doing that.
Speaking of cucumbers this is now what my cucumber patch looks like....frosty and crispy!
