End of September

September is almost over….hard to believe. Before we know it Halloween will be here. This is the 1st Tuesday that I have had off in a very long time and in spite of the rain it feels really good to be home.

We started this month with Tied-Dyed cupcakes. A little Labor Day celebration with a “Tied-Dyed” theme. Actually Ron was laboring at 4 in the morning making these little delicious cakes.

The Husband and I spent our vacation sleeping, eating, drinking and relaxing just as we promised ourselves we would. No big projects this time, not one. However, The Husband did do a small project. We are taking growing our veggies to the next level – cold frames. Excellent job honey, now for B to bring the other window over so we can get the larger one built.

The garden produced and is still producing veggies. This had led to drying veggies, canning veggies, freezing veggies and giving many veggies away to friends. These are sweet potatoes. I wasn’t even sure if we could grow them. I guess we can!

Since the weather finally broke we have been getting back into our weekend escapes with the dogs out of the city. This is a very special place for me. I spent a lot of time here when I lived in Cleveland and find peace when I visit.




A man fishing on a Sunday afternoon, perfect.

    An old window, hmmm. I can see a cold frame on my deck.

    Do you have to worry about ventilation in the cold frame?

    A cold frame indeed….

    We have now moved the cold frame into the garden area where the baby plants are in the soil. The bonus is that they are thriving and growing.

    The husband used 3 hinges that we had so we can open it. We use a scrap of wood to prop it open when it’s warm out. I usually have it cracked open even at night – we are close to the lake so we are warmer than most. We still have to get a thermometer to watch the inside temperatures. For the winter we will put bails of hay around it for extra insulation. I am so excited because this opens up so many possibilities.

    I have seen folks put them on their decks to start seeds early and use a type of foam board to help with insulation. Very cool stuff.
