Moose On The Loose

   It is a rainy, dreary day here this morning, but I was pleasantly surprised by a visit from a moose!  A fairly small one, looking for food.  She nibbled on our neighbour's crab apple tree, then wandered around our yard for a while, then back into our neighbour's yard.  When she was finished, she I assume she strolled up their driveway and out onto the street.  Poor little thing.  Didn't look all that well.

Two Weeks To Go...

I have been unusually patient this year, and have held off starting all my seeds except leeks.  Two or three weeks to go until I can start everything else.  The pots, soil, coir pellets, and heat mats are out and ready.  In the meantime, I keep going through my packets and deciding what I want to grow...and then changing my mind...

Remembering My Garden Helpers

Remembering my favourite garden helpers.  It just won't be the same this summer without them.

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.  (Leo Dworken)
