The days are shorter and certainly wet (recent storm dumped over an 1″) and colder! Much of the backyard garden is now white – not with snow but row covers.
The weather’s turned quite chilly in the morning and we are doing our best to fend off the cold – bundling up. Thankfully we did have visitors on Sunday and we finally fired up the wood stove. Hmmm, let me get this straight – visitors equals warmth? Maybe I should call all my friends asking them over for tea or something?
Nah, it’s cold but not to the extent where “I can’t function and feel my fingers cold.” We are used freezing our tootsies a bit and just didn’t want our visitors to feel uncomfortable like they were in an ice box when we are all bundled up (here are other ways we keep warm without central heat here on the urban homestead)
The front porch farm stand is now offering greens and salad so swing on by! Spanky our tabby is the official farm stand greeter so make sure you pet and sweet talk him or he’ll be mighty insulted!
Certainly! What would ya’ll like to read, see more about? I know I haven’t done the ‘Weekly Meal Wrap Ups’ in quite sometime. Just goes to shows that once you get out of routine tis hard to get back. Heck, that’s one of the reasons we’ve never got around to writing a book – the blog and urban homestead would certainly suffer (we’ve heard/seen it happen with other authors)
Now, I can’t promise anything but I will certainly try.
