Charles and I both feel like we cannot catch up since the time change. We have lost an hour of sleep with the time change because we cannot seem to get our bedtime straightened out.
When we change our clocks, we check our fire smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Then when we get up high might as well look for cobwebs and get them while we are at it.
Remember our baby seedlings that I was putting in the window ledge? I planted them on January 19 & 20. This was only a few weeks later I took this photo above. Well, they have grown a lot since then.
This is the same tomato seedlings. They have been outside basking in 80 plus degree temperatures. Now we have plunged down to frost and just above freezing. So I had no choice but to use the living room (that I had just managed to get back in order from the work in the bedroom) and have been carrying them inside and outside each day. They have required a lot of my attention.
Now the zucchini are emerging...
and the scalloped (patty pan) squash are coming up. I am so excited and they will need to be given care as well to get them through the cooler weather because squash does not tolerate cold or cool weather.
I just planted potatoes this morning after Charles added some compost to the planters. I will work on these trays and move them to larger cups. Front right is lavender, front left is sage, back right is oregano and back left is rosemary.
Some of you may remember our greenhouses and wonder why we are not using them. Well, this kind of weather is brutal inside a greenhouse. 80 degrees or even 70 degrees can mean over 100 degrees inside the greenhouse. We do not have a fan system or heat so this is the only way I know how to do this and so I am surely getting my exercise.
I hope the mulberries will survive the frost and cold temperatures. We cannot protect our trees that have fruited early.
I am still trying to find a place for Norm, nothing seems to make him happy.
I have plans for the blue guest room...
I better get some laundry out to the clothesline, I had extra washing this week so trying to catch up. I hope to see you tomorrow and share with you a peek at what went on in and around our house today.
