It’s been a while since I’ve updated anyone on our activities. I actually posted this last year but found the photos didn’t come through so I thought I’d post it again.
Here’s a few things that happened last summer.
Little chicks were born.
Beets were plentiful as well. Probably too plentiful. We’ll need to plant a few less rows than this year.
I have a friend in California that gave me some pepper seeds that were heritage to his grandfather in Italy. I’m happy to report Papi Tomato that your grandfathers peppers are now being grown in Canada.
Carrots were great. We got around 500 lbs of them and they are sweet and delicious.
I know what you are thinking. How in the world do you store that many carrots? We learned this trick from an old Gypsy man that traveled through our area and for a meal and a nights lodging shared with us all his mysterious secrets.
His name was Google. He’s a great guy.
We used to use sand but sand is heavy. I’m a weakling and can’t handle heavy loads anymore so we use saw dust instead as shown below.
Our kids are often cranky during the summer as all we do is work. See Ringo’s I hate summer look below.
We love having cousins over as they are easy to trick into thinking doing stuff like carrots is fun.
Millie is usually the carrot stacker as she’s much more detailed than I am.
I’m the digger and Polly is the hauler.
Lots of radishes.
And around 1200 lbs of potato’s.
We did do some fun stuff this summer as well.
But all in all I’m looking forward to another long winter.
