I am really behind on everything I would love to share. Between work, family, and all my projects my blog really suffers.
I will get around to posting my US travels at some point, but not today.
We have had a very unexpectedly warm, sunny, and dry Spring/Summer/Fall. Usually, we would be going back and forth between 12C and 4C days with wet gloomy grey skies, and instead we have had sunny cloudless 22C to 28C days! It’s like a dream come true. I know that nature is suffering under these conditions, but I am feeling great.
The best part (as a gardener) of this whole weird weather is that my plants are giving more fruits and the fruit is more intense in flavor – sun does wonders for food. This is thanks to my awesome neighbors who watered all my plants for 6 weeks! And, not one of them even had a wilted leaf on them.
Here’s an update on how my mini farm looked a few weeks ago. Now, 1/3 of the plants are indoors to protect them from the cold at night, and the outdoor plants are set up to better catch the lower sun’s rays. More pictures to come!
