Did everyone have a nice Halloween? There are no children living in our community except grandchildren but Gracie, Cali and Nora came over so we could see their costumes. Gracie just loves baby Nora and will make a great babysitter before we know it!
Here is grandson Travis with their darling baby Nora!
We don't use a lot of taco seasoning but needed to make up more.
Trying to prepare for winter in zone 5. Rosemary will not survive outside in our zone but I put leaves around them and am hoping!!
I made melt and pour soap with rose essential oil. It is a shea butter soap and is white although this picture shows cream.
It is now all packaged up in cellophane ready to give away.
At the previous house I did nothing with my hollyhock for winter. I read to cut dead foliage off and cut back to about 6 inches and mulch. Done! Hoping for flowers next year.
Made up a gluten free biscuit with a mix from Bob's Red Mill. Fixed some breakfast sandwiches for myself with egg and cheese. On a scale of one to ten I would rate it about a six! But "beggars can't be choosers" when trying to eat gluten free!
I have been trying to figure out how to keep my strawberries in the raised bed on legs from freezing. We put plastic around the bottom and then I put leaves around the strawberries but read that was not good so am taking those off. Bought a half of a bale of straw and will put some of that around them after a couple of hard frosts. This raised bed gardening in a courtyard with a dog that has to have room to "potty" and eats all my veggies is certainly a challenge! Thank you for visiting. Please come again!
