But...it is 15C (59F) at 8:30AM this morning!! Yesterday was hot and humid, today looks to be gearing up to be the same.Tea, yes; and the latest socks, hot off the needles. Shorter hours of daylight enabled a little knitting.
The harvest continues...The last picking of peppers, now dried and frozen.
Garlic cleaned and stored.
One of the next chores on the list is preparing a garlic bed, for planting in a couple of weeks.
Four rutabagas that grew like crazy once they were transplanted. Must have been all the rain.
We have had 4 mornings of light frost. Nothing was seriously injured.
A dahlia grown from a freebee in a plant order.
It was labelled as a variety called "KA's Cloud", and on looking it up, it is supposed to be a "blush-kissed white". Obviously someone boobed somewhere!
The big water tank being towed to its winter hibernation behind the barn.
The wood shed is on the way to being totally filled, and cleaning the chimneys is a job for this week, as we'll surely be needing a fire if the forecast for this weekend is to be believed. This stretch of unusually warm, dry weather is supposed to come to a screeching halt this weekend, which is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada.
I usually bemoan the end of the garden season, but this year...I am so ready!! Come on Jack Frost!
