    The first real snowfall

    Photo-upload-419395?1416586868 Yesterday we had showers of dry snow flakes which lay like white dust but this morning I woke to a white world. Not a great deal of snow, maybe an inch. So the Arctic Outflow has ended. In any case, we were only on the western edge and the lowest temperature was -7C so it was a much gentler desce...

    Seasonal weather finally

    A little wet, but comfortable to go outside with a long sleeve shirt and down vest. Apparently it's not going to last, and we'll be back in the deep freeze. The pond is still really frozen. I think in the shallow end it probably froze through (16 days I think it is below the freezing mark-- in...

    Gardens galore

    This gardening season has been quite eventful. A friend of mine asked if we'd like to take on part of her allotment. It's too big for her and too much work. After some consideration, we decided to say yes. The garden behind our house is just really not a big enough play area for our boy, especial...

    Mixing biochar

    The tiny trailer is full of sifted compost, so am planning on mixing the compost half and half with the medium particles of biochar and adding inoculant to each bag. This will be used to make the potting mix in the spring along with the leaf mold, more compost, Epsom salts, lime, perlite and 10-1...

    Moved the tiny trailer into the garage

    Photo-upload-419588?1417095255 After removing the trammel from the tiny trailer, I moved it into the warmer garage to thaw out the compost. Seeing as how it's so windy and cold outside, I thought it would work better to work in the warmer garage.
