I looked back quickly earlier this morning and realized that I missed posting a What’s Happening update in October. The Halloween hoopla kind of overtakes everything around here, even as the kids get older.
Anyway, it’s November and we have had absolutely beautiful weather. I hate dismantling the deck so I resisted and resisted. Michael is the primary dismantler and he prefers to do it without snow on the deck. I don’t mind a little snow if it means that we’ve enjoyed coffee or lunch (it’s too dark for dinner) one more time. But, the time has come and it’s been reduced to this:
A lovely pile of pots that need to be washed out as soon as possible.
It has to happen but it’s never pretty.
Down in the garden the chard is still beautiful. I took pictures of it covered with frost last week…
It’s amazing how some plants bounce back!
Same thing with the cilantro…
The sage can still be used for Thanksgiving.
And I don’t think the lemon balm ever really dies.
Herbs are just so darned hardy!
I took this little bunch of geranium plants in to soak for awhile. I think I’ll plant them in pots and winter them over in my office.
The asparagus fern will probably be on the table on Thanksgiving day.
As will the last clump of carrots that I harvested this morning.
This very grateful girl is wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!
And so am I!
We are both blessed!
