the tv weather people are predicting snow today. more so out west of here. we are maybe only getting a trace. we will get a cold front though. temps will be below freezing the next two nights. that prompted me to pick or dig up what we had left in the grow boxes.
I got this box of hot peppers. they are habaneros. not all turned color. you can pick them anyway. in my case, I would prefer to eat them instead of letting the frost kill them. there are a few jalapenos too.
I got maybe a 1/3 box of Anaheim peppers. I haven’t roasted them. might just cut them up for seasoning. all my peppers grew late because the heat was zapping the plants.
I dug up the sweet potatoes. didn’t get very many. nor were they very big. I will get a meal or two out of them. again better than letting the freeze kill them and they go to waste.
I also got a big box of onions. can never have too many onions. I planted a lot of them. we cook them with every thing. we will cut up the greens and freeze them. we use them a lot in cooking too.
this past week I filled out a form to have wood delivered to me. I am 66 years old, am diabetic and have arthritis. hope that is enough. in the past, I cut many loads of wood for my house and for ceremonial use. I can probably still do it but I would be sore for days afterward. a nurse once told me ‘no one should have to live in pain’. amen to that. now I hope I can kick back and have someone else cut it.
they haven’t delivered any wood yet. I haven’t cleaned the old stove pipes out anyway. I will get to that before winter hits. I usually do that a few times a year. they aren’t very bad. the cold snap isn’t suppose to last but a few days. I have enough wood left in the basement to make a fire if I have to.
if we only get a trace of snow I wonder if that is enough to blast the little bunnies in my garden. we could never hunt rabbits until the first snow fall. then we would walk all day while hunting. nowadays some just drive around. most work they do is rolling the window down. that aint hunting.
and if we only get a trace will there be enough to wash my face in the snow. I have done that most of my life. even when I was out bumming around the country. I would do that whenever I seen the first snow.
a week or so ago we had 90 degree weather. now we talking bout possible snow. its like the old saying ‘if you don’t like the weather in Kansas, move to missouri’. or maybe I got that wrong. something like that.
