Mar 1914

Had a beautiful day yesterday.  We got up to 42 by afternoon and had the sun shine all day!  We went down to the garden and cleaned out the fall planted onions and then planted the over 200 sweet onions.  As for the fall planted onions, the red onions are up pretty good, the garlic is up spotty but the shallots don’t seem to have made it at all.  Last year at this time the garlic was up a foot or more and all in a nice thick row.  I guess last winter was warmer than this winter was so the fall planting didn’t do as well.  There aren’t as many weeds either. We also started the burning.  We have lots of paper type waste to burn plus brush and winter drops.  Today looks to be even better.  We are starting the day at 39 so by breakfast it should be very warm .  Norman will till the house garden and I will finish the burning.  When I get that done I will try to do some more weeding in the hosta bed.  Have a great 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.
