Fall Rant.

Don't get me wrong.
I love gardening.
My fingers itch to get all muddy and dirty when spring shows up.
I satisfy my addiction in the winter by babying my house plants.

But by the time September rolls around I want a break from weeding, watering, planting and harvesting.  Usually my last weeding is late September. Then I can relax and start planning for next season. 

Well this year God has some other idea!
We are October 29, 2014. 8:14pm!!! And it's almost 20 degrees Celcius outside!
What's with that!!!??  No I don't want snow right now, but nice cool temps would be nice.
You know, just above freezing.

It's been a hot, hot fall. I think I've had three frosts here. And that's it.

Last week I had to do ANOTHER weeding for pete's sake!

Enough already. 

I also discovered peas growing. They're about a foot tall.
Heaven's to Mergatroid! 
What the heck?

Two days ago, Dave discovered a wood tick on the cat.
I go outside at night and the nightcrawlers and peepers are out.

This is not normal people!

But on the bright side, it is easy on the heating bill.
That's something we can all be thankful about!

I'm just waiting for the bomb to drop.
Wake up one morning with a foot of snow on the ground.
Yup, I can see it happen.

As a matter of fact it's giving snow for Sunday.

Have a Blessed Evening.

In the meantime, enjoy some nice fall scenes from my yard.

And another nice view from my yard.

Getting ready for Halloween! This year the girls are getting into the groove also.

I know, I know...

I've become one of  "those"  people.

I dress my dogs.

Have a Blessed Day

Where did it go?!

Where did the summer go?

I'm not sure?

I know the summer usually goes by fast, but this is ridiculous.

I'm still looking for it.

If you find it, can you let me know?

The only vacation we had was a few days in Halifax. It was nice to get away from the farm.

This summer we were lucky to have helpers from HelpX.

All three were from France. So far people from France are super helpers!!! And excellent cooks.

Myriam cooked beef bourguigion. Yum! She did the fast method (it took two days). Then the last few weeks we had Sonia and Agathe. They made us crepes sarazzin aux ble noir and dessert crepes.
Crepe sarrazin with my own goat cheese

Dessert crepe with caramel and ice cream

Our helpers Agathe and Sonia trying clams

Then we had Open Farm day in September. It was a super busy day.

My soap, apple butter and goat fudge

Yours truly teaching how to make soap

 But the summer has been an adventure and my garden turned out super dooper.

My dill


An entire meal made with the fruits of our labour

Our carrots kinda freaked me out! I didn't realize how big they were!

So now things are slowing down...well...kinda.

Have a Blessed Day
