we have had a few more gorgeous days...getting lots done and enjoying ourselves.
this is the only maple on our property. it's some beautiful!
there are maples dotted here and there around the Framboise area, but mostly we have birch and evergreens in our area. there are other areas of cape breton island that are green, red, yellow and orange right now...driving in to town or to our small city at this time of year is beautiful. we have an appointment in our small city tomorrow and the only thing that will make the trip worthwhile is the beautiful autumn colours!
more beautiful? how about cabbage rolls with sauerkraut - yummeh!
we are on round five of lettuces this year - woohoo! the greenhouse will enable us to grow our own lettuce from april to end december. this is tatsoi lettuce and we love it! this weekend i will plant 2 more trays of mesclun.
it's october 28th and i cannot believe that the tomatoes in the greenhouse are still flowering?!?!? that's just crazy! we have a bunch of fresh tomatoes in the fridge and there are a good 15-20 tomatoes still on the plants turning colour. this greenhouse is working out big time!
here's some queen thai basil going to seed. seeds for next year!
and here's some regular basil going to flower. we will let it go to seed and collect seeds for next year as well. 2 more types of seeds that we will never have to buy again! (these seeds were planted from last year's seeds - we are at a point where we buy very little seed over the last few years. it feels awesome!)
jambaloney's latest, greatest, bestest garbage find!
a steel shelving stand with 6 shelves in perfect condition!
i cooked and cleaned all day taking breaks to go out and spend some time in the yard with the cats and jambaloney and to get my vitamin D. jambaloney built the floor of our new storage shed. not too shabby!
we had a roasted, stuffed chicken with roasted root vegetables for supper - it was some good!
tomorrow we are off to our appointment and then we'll probably flump for the rest of the afternoon after we get home. we are expecting high winds and rain tomorrow. then on friday, jam will do more work on the shed and i will make a wicked raspberry-chocolate-coconut bar dessert to bring over to our friends' c&g's house for supper. we will be having supper with c&g and s&h. it should be a really nice evening!
saturday is the halloween dance in fourchu! people here are crazy for dressing up and the like - we dressed up 4 years in a row and have decided to be grinches and say the heck with dressing up this year. it's just not our thing. but we will enjoy the dance and get to see our friends - that's what we really care about.
not sure what any of your halloween plans are but whatever they are - i hope that you enjoy yourselves!
