Nov 1912

Missed my blog yesterday.  We went to Spencer yesterday to vote and while we were there we took care of all the little errands we had to do before going to Florida.  I think we will have to go only once more before we leave and that would be to go to the dump for the last time.  When we got home we found the onions had arrived to plant so Norman spent the afternoon getting the three rows ready again to plant the onions.  He had weeds to get out again.  Then this morning we worked together and planted all the red onions somewhere between 60 and 70 of those, all of the shellots and all the garlic.  Needless to say there is not enough room in those three rows to plant the yellow onions when they come so tomorrow Norman will get another row ready for those and we do have a half row still left.  That should be enough room for onions.  Those will be ready to harvest in May or early June so we will plant green beans when they come out.  Good start on next years harvest.  Have a great night.

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.
