Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)! Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! I strongly recommend a hot drink today. It’s still early, and the mornings have been cold all week, in the 30’s. What would you like? There is coffee of course, and a large variety of teas; blueberry, black currant, hawthorn, rhubarb/vanilla, black tea, chai, and matcha to mention a few.
How is your week? It’s been a beautiful week here. The days have been just right (according to me,) with cool mornings and highs in the upper 60’s, low 70’s. There have been a few light rains, especially in the evenings, but not every evening. I’ve harvested the last of the beans, bell-pepper, and zucchinis.
They all had more flowers, and would have produced more with warmer weather, but the cool nights damaged the plants. That is OK, I am so grateful for the bounty they did give us. I like fall, and enjoyed cleaning up in the garden this week.
Cleaning out the frost damaged plants in my container garden, and starting to get organised for fall/winter, and eventually a new gardening season 🙂 Before the snow I will add aged manure, and more eggshells on top of the old soil. The rain and snow snow this winter will spread the nutrients from the manure throughout the container, and in the spring I will plant new veggies in them.
I did save the tomatoes, celery, and cucumbers. The celery will be OK for a while longer. The tomatoes and cucumbers still have lots of unripe fruit coming, we’ll see about them. It doesn’t harm to keep them a little longer.
The day temperatures the next ten days are suppose to be around 65F, and the nights in the 30’s. I might pick the biggest green cherry tomatoes and let them ripe indoors, we’ll see. It feel so weird to read about some of my friends experiencing heatwaves at the moment, when I am wearing my thick jacket in the morning. What’s the weather like where you are?
Work have been great and busy all week. I have no other weekend plans than taking some walks, fixing things around the house, doing some reading, write some things for work, helping my daughter with this week’s homework (mostly done, just need to check it,) and perhaps we’ll light the first fire in the fireplace for the season. It is suppose to rain all weekend.
I was outside in the garden early, early this morning to get some fresh air before the rain starts. When the week is so busy I truly enjoy just spending time with my daughter at home. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
