Walked around in the garden on Sunday and still have greens growing. The ground cover which is a weed that comes up every fall is shepards purse (I think) and is totally useless to me other than to keep the soil from washing so I tolerate it as it goes to seed and dies in early spring. When you walk on it there is kind of a garlic smell, it seems to give the greens some cover. The plant in the center is a mustard green.
The kale is my favorite as far as taste goes.
Opened up some of my peppers and tomatoes to make a pot of chili, not exactly a christmas meal but I like it on a cold day. Made corn muffins to go with it.
Foggy and rainy on christmas eve, didn't get a lot done other than bring in wood and take care of the animals. Aggy smelled some more good scents on the trail, probably a squirrel, she has astered treeing them.
Christmas morning finally arrived, I got some new gloves, no more cold hands in the morning! Nice quiet day at home this year.
This morning it was cold with freezing rain or sleet or snow, depending on when you looked. the boys were ready for their hay.
It didn't amount to much, just made doing things a little harder.
I put out some more hay at lunch and Dusty got a little bit as he was giving me the sad horse look. It usually works.
We finally got out to DQ for some internet this afternoon. The sun actually came out for awhile but then it clouded over and is cold again.
