It has been the weather of July lately, but some decidedly October weather is on its way.
Here is a little autumn chicken picture for you.
I spent a good part of yesterday clearing out my vegetable garden. The girls enjoyed some rutabaga greens.
As well, they received the last dregs of the tomatoes.
They will happily convert all of this into eggs for us. (Except for that brown chicken, she hasn't laid an egg in about three years!)
This is what I salvaged and I'm done, completely done. I don't care if I don't see another tomato for months. The mystery vine turned out to be spaghetti squash (from some that I threw in the compost months earlier).
I'm not even sure what those squash are like on the inside, hopefully o.k.
Today we have a technician to come and finalize wiring and set up a proper working internet system in our old house. We recently had an excruciating ten rounds with two providers as we were not happy with losing services and the amount we were paying, only to find out the other provider couldn't even get us internet here. Reliable internet in rural Ontario is still not a given for everyone. We have a choice between two providers. That's it. And neither one is inexpensive or perfect. In order to save some money, we finally dropped our land line. I know, most people who have crawled out of the dinosaur ages have already dropped their land lines ages ago, but change is hard for some (cough husband cough!!). Our problem is due to the physical nature of our home with an addition built on with double brick old walls and a big expanse of metal roof over a car port in between. Our son is in the addition, and in order for him to have a strong enough, fast enough signal, hard wiring has to be put in, and boosters, and other such stuff that I'm not sure I fully understand. Husband and son pulled through some wiring last weekend in order to prepare.
So how are the other gardeners on here? All done for the season? Anyone else done battle with Bell in rural Canada?
