    Hello :) thanks for the note :) Well hubby is doing ok... just ok... but considering what they did to his leg... he is probably pretty good... not walking as much as he claims to the dr's and spends a lot of time sleeping...
    We moved to a little town in Manitoba called Cartwright... like the tv western... we even have Ponderosa Days got our rodeo :) it is not too small and not too big... you can get around on your mobility scooter but still buy all the necessary groceries... is actually growing :) there is several large industrial businesses.. 2 trailer builders and some house builders that ship their houses once built... when we moved to town some people had a fit that we were "dog breeders" and had a flip out! I guess one in 100 years has ever had a litter of pups in this town lol gave the neighbors quite a laugh as she had an unexpected litter of 12 a few years ago! Also when I told her that you could not have a fence in town she did not yet have an appreciation of my sense of humor and said I didn't know that! I was thinking of building one..{It was that my hubby said we could not have a fence!} she thought it meant no one could... I think people here may drink a little too much in the sun! LOL Anyway I did get a new kitchen installed right away so that was nice :) The little kittie in my slippers has had a second litter of kittens since we moved in May! LOL so I have been busy selling kittens! LOL as well as the litter of pups we had this summer :) Planning on two litters for after Christmas :) That should really set them talking! LOL

    End of summer crops are continuing. I planted extra peas for a second batch. Acorn squash is still producing and carrots are maturing. With the weather cooling off the lettuce should be revitalized.

    Berries have been hard to keep up with this year. At one point I was picking a full basket every day. They've been so yummy! Now the peas are really coming in. They're bush peas and have large edible pods. Don't you just love going out to the yard for fresh food?!

    Tonnes of strawberries and raspberries this year!

    The first 2 ripe, juicy strawberries were wonderful. Looking forward to many more and the raspberry bushes are loaded!

    Hi, Red Hill Hollow!
    Just paying a visit to see how you're doing and wishing things are going well for you.

    Hello Red Hill Hollow, Sorry I haven't logged in until now to say Hi and see how you're doing. I cannot believe how everything's growing in your front yard. Looks really nice. It was just a giant empty area. You've done such a nice job. What all you got up front now? I hope you're doing well these days! I'm pretty much done planting everything this spring. We'll see how it all goes.

    Hello! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a post on my page! Don't know why I didn't see it sooner. As far as emergency seeds.. it is worst case scenario. I'd rather be prepared than not. I'm not into the zombie thing either, lol.... but there are too many scary things going on the the world. A couple well place nukes could knock out North America's power grid and send us into chaos. I'm in a heavy earthquake zone that could leave us helpless for quite a while if a big one hit. There are many scenarios that could play out.... hopefully not. Actually, "prepping" is a fun hobby. It keeps me thinking anyway! Hope all is well with you! Gave you a vote since I was here!
