Still Trusting the Seeds

The only tomato brought in from outside. We will see how it goes.

Today, I’m re-evaluating, planning on transpanting the seed tomato plants into big pots and replanting lettuce. I’m looking at homemade rooting hormones and have discovered some interesting options: 1) Asprin 2) Willow tea 3) Aloe Vera Juice. They all have a rooting enhancing compound known as Salicylic acid . In addition I’m going to get some Hydrogen Peroxide to keep the watering balance and prevent root rot. Click on the article to check out the details.

Ox Pulls at the Fryeburg Fair

Will probably be spending the day at Maine’s Fryeburg Fair, which is fairly famous around here. Every farmer and a lot of wanna be’s like me will be watching the horse pulls, the skillet tosses and eating carnival food while we smell the manure and enjoy the beautiful fall day. That’s because Troy, our guy from Barbedos got here last night. He’s already out taking pictures of our lake. I’ll have to try to get some up here, but he usually takes months to get them into the shape he wants them, so meanwhile they will just be my phone photos. Happy Harvest.

It’s a good thing it was a big pie.

God, we live in a gorgeous place. Frigid today. 42 degrees when I woke up, but the sun is out over the lake warming us and the pumpkin pie I invented yesterday was delicous for dessert last night and breakfast this morning.
