I have been having problems with google again. I couldn't get signed in for a couple of days. I know what the trouble is and have found a solution for it for now. Just a pain in the ***, if you know what I mean.
The Artic Express rolled in last night. Temps around 40 with cold north wind. Snow flurries earlier this morning. It is that time of year. Still need moisture. Not just flurries. We had to fire up the pellet stove in the middle of the night. Sure did feel good this morning.
I have been working on the garden in preparation for next spring. Been adding mulch in the beds and getting ready to build more beds. I may not get them all done this fall, but will have time in the spring to finish. Carol has been busy canning. Our daughter had given us some sausage, so she canned it last week. Makes room in the freezer and if we lose electricity it will be not be lost. We bought potatoes from a commercial farm anf have cannedsome of them. Still more of them to do. I got a little wheat last week from a neighbor and will make some flour out of that. Our new chickens are doing ok. There is still a little animosity in the pen, but not too bad. They are laying also, so we have plenty to spare.
I did a power shopping trip this week. Caught a lot of items on sale that we either needed or wanted for stock. We have been trying to get our supplies built up in case we need them. We are at the end of the county road system, so in the event of a bad blizzard, we could be blocked in for a few days. Not only that, but if the "you know what hits the fan"...............!
Time to "play like a horse turd" and hit the trail.
