Still hot here and will be for at least a week more.  It is an ill wind that blows no good, they tell me the nights must be about 70 degrees to set tomatoes and I have alot of tomato blossoms beging set these hot nights so I guess I can’t complain I should have a big early crop of tomatoes.  We finally found some parsnip seeds and Dad is almost done the new garden spot so he will plant some of those in there and we will let them grow all winter and have them when we come home in March.  It used to work in NH so will hope it does here also.  Today I need to burn and then tomorrow water again so it looks like Monday before I get to freeze more beets unless I work one afternoon which I may do.  We tried the frozen beets that I did not blanch and they worked out fine so think that is the way to do them.  They are not so soft as the cooked/frozen ones and much easier to do.  Time to pick strawberries for breakfast.  Have a good day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
