Scraping the Windshields in October - NOT

So, once again, my fail safe frost and freeze advisory warning system failed to warn me. I really need a backup.
Because going out in the early AM to do the chores and being hit in the face with the woeful death cries of all of my lettuces, herbs and tomatoes and peppers is not a fun way to find out.

There wasn't time this morning before work to do the CPR thing, being as how I was SCRAPING THE ICE OFF OF MY WINDSHIELD so this afternoon, I'll have quite a bit of damage control to do. Since my greenhouse platform isn't done, I'll have to beg, borrow and steal window sill space to try to keep these things going. But the rewards will be fresh grown "stuff" in the middle of the winter.


Fresh rabbit food when there's 5 feet of snow outside.

And, I lit the stove again last night. Again, some warning would have been nice, and you know who you are!

This weekend I have some serious "clean off the deck and find a spot for firewood and then haul said firewood up to the deck" to do. Serious. As in, Large Amounts of firewood.

It's just that time of year.

One more thing before winter, I have to build a bigger hay feeder for my calves. That's easy. Almost no-brainer. How hard can it be.

Ugh, don't say that.

And the deer carrots are out in full force. I didn't get any canned last night, so this weekend will find me hauling, building and canning. No wonder hubby is going away (duck hunting - yummy!)
Good times! Monday night, roasted duck with potatoes, carrots and onions and maybe a sage stuffing.
