It's time! We've been busy buttoning up things in the frigid north and have our sights on heading back to Broulee.
Rick getting our bumper crop of peanuts dug up before our first frost. This was our first experiment with peanuts and probably our last. Planted 50 seeds and ended up with five plants, no thanks to the squirrels. Next year, if we try again, we will be smarter (better screening).
Another experiement planting garlic proved to be a bit more successful.
So once again, tropical plants have been moved, boats and docks put to rest and what leaves have fallen, raked and hauled to the compost site.
Of course, not all work - attended Cooper's Halloween party at school. This is his 4th grade class having some fun. (Coop is the Grimm Reaper with glowing red eyes - middle of the pack).
Izzy was ready to go and is waiting patiently for the guys - she has been in there for at least a half hour.
Izzy very proud of her first bird of the season. Good job Izzy!!
A cold front pushed thru most of the country and we have spent the past two days with temps barely reaching 30. The words "wind chill" have crept back into our morning weather forcasts. Yesterdays windchill made it feel like 12 degrees and this morning the waking actual temp was 13.
Time to get moving.
Frosty view of the lake.
