We thought it would never come but all things do end. Anyway, beautiful sunny winter days won’t be around for a while now. Spring is very nice but until all the snow has melted and the frost is out of the ground it’s messy and dirty. However, good spring rains will wash the dirt away […]
It’s still cold and snowy but change will be coming soon.
What’s that in Fahrenheit? Minus 16 Fahrenheit. That’s not so cold. What’s everybody yammering about? Well, most of the yammering is coming from the Toronto stations. What a bunch of whiners. They are too lah-di-dah for me sometimes.
Well, look who’s talking. I’ve been hibernating most of the winter making my soups and stews and […]
There’s no getting around it. Freshly fallen snow under sunny skies is a sight to behold. That is until the snow plows come by and throw all the muck on our property. Then the sanders and the salters do their thing – not once, not twice but with every snowfall. The trick is to get […]
They’re just little now and look a bit sparse but we had to give them room to spread. They come alive in the winter.
I sit and worry about the new evergreens we planted last Spring. The row of Emerald Cedars are mighty close to the sidewalk. I worry about winter salting. That will turn some of the leaves brown.I could wrap them in burlap but that would defeat the look I’m trying to achieve. After all, evergreens come […]
Ah, but Spring is in the air. How do I know? Yesterday, I killed a spider in the house. The day before, I killed a fly and a lady bug. Believe me, the bugs know when it’s Spring.
I sowed my seeds four days ago and the tomatoes have already sprouted. By tomorrow I […]
This has got to be the most depressing time of year. We have had such a long, cold winter. Last night it was -20 C. That’s cold. We’re all in the same boat. We are all waiting anxiously for warmer weather.
I hear the environmentalists are being quiet these days. It’s hard to sell “Global […]
I’m crossing my fingers that whatever I sowed will survive until it’s time to plant out. The 4 o’clocks are big already. When I say big, I mean they needed transplanting in their own little pots. I am just now starting to save the single serving yogurt cups. Duh! They make perfect little pots for […]
This year, I couldn’t wait to start gardening. As soon as the Christmas decorations were taken down and packed away at the beginning of January, I started my winter sowing. I’d been collecting clear plastic containers for some time so I drilled holes at the bottom of said containers, drilled holes on the lids, filled […]
