Week 21

Today feels like a fall day. It is cool outside and raining. The plan was to get my butt out in the garden and pull everything out, but not too interested in doing that in my rubber boots!

The leaves have almost all fallen off by now and the dirty word of snow is on everyone’s lips. Let’s hope the rain goes away and we have a bit more fall before the snow arrives. We still have more than half the crop still on the field. So tomorrow better be windy and hot so everything dries out!

The carrots and potatoes are still in the garden and now with all this rain I wish I would have taken them out last week. The carrots should still be fine, but the potatoes might get a bit mouldy and rotten. I hope they don’t since we have only dug up one plant so far!

I will have no fall crops this year as the snow will arrive before anything would have the chance to grow. I would still like to plant garlic before the snow comes, but I don’t know if that is going to happen now.

Okay no more snow talk......To put ya back into the spring spirit here are some pics of the bouquets I got for my birthday. They are pretty enough to put a smile back on anyone’s face, especially mine!


I almost have my craft room cleaned up. I can see the floor and my cutting table and now I just have to put the rest of the crap crafts away...lol So I hope to have something to show from that room in the next few days!

  7. Cindy- Thank you :)My potatoes survive until about -15C and then they start to go bad. I try to remember to bring them in before then! If you can find a dark cool place for your sweet potatoes they should be okay. Good Luck!!
