|Frozen meatloaf thawing to pop in the oven for supper!|
I am not looking forward to winter. I could really live in a warmer climate. One with lots of sunshine. My husband says Hawaii would be perfect for me. I am not sure I could handle living on an "island". I used to appreciate the change in seasons, but as I get older, I appreciate the warmer weather more.
Even with the cooler weather, I am still able to gather some things from the garden. The chickens are enjoying the brussel sprouts and broccoli still growing. They like the leaves as much as the vegetables.
Today I pulled up the hot peppers. They didn't make it through the last couple nights. I forgot to cover them. Each day I take the covering off of the plants and replace them at night. Which I evidently forgot to do. It looks as though from the weather forecast this may be the last week I am able to hold on to the plants. Next year a greenhouse is in my plans. Unfortunately for now, my celery looks like it is just starting to do well. I will have to harvest what I can, and soon.
