For the past six weeks my dear spouse has been in Toronto while I have been keeping the home fires going. That has proven to be exhausting work. The vegetable garden has been producing beets, carrots, cilantro and lettuce that all need picking. And the apple orchard is now in its full glory. I spend three hours each week just mowing the lawn (and that is truly ridiculous considering we only mow half our property). I am loathe to admit it but I still haven't planted all the perennials I purchased earlier in the summer.
Plants still waiting to go in the ground
Taking care of a large house on 3 acres is no small feat I tell ya. But this weekend Jody came home so I celebrated that as a triumph. I threw chores to the wind and we headed out on the town for dinner and a trip to the race track.
The plants can wait just a few more days can't they?
