This & That Dec. 10, 2019

My phone here in NW Indiana said it felt like 3 degrees!  This is what I picked from the cold frame this morning.  My cheeks were so cold.

I garden in a winter jacket and ear muffs.

Kind of blurry but Coco got her grooming haircut with a Christmas scarf!  She doesn't look too happy.

Mike got the tree down from the attic and Melissa and Cali decorated it for us.  We are so grateful for the help of family.

Love the expression on this one of Cali.

Cali put out some of our manger scenes.  Bob made this one years ago.  One of my favorites.  She also set up our nutcrackers in front of the fireplace.

How many of you can eat lunch with your leg behind your head!  Gracie can but not me for sure!!

I tried to make these scrunchies.  Sewing the elastic together tries my patience!

I made these chocolate banana muffins using a regular recipe and substituting a gluten free flour.  They turned out really yummy.

My seeds came this week!  Time for armchair gardening for me.  Christmas will be here before we know it and then spring.  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season and a healthy New Year.  Thanks for visiting!  Nancy

Amazing that you are still picking from the cold frame. The decorations are so pretty and you have really cute helpers.
Those muffins look yummy.
It sure is cold here today as well! Stay warm.

Hi Cheryl, Thank you!I am not sure how much longer I will be able to pick but enjoy while I can. Am trying to learn how to make it more productive. Have a nice day. Nancy

Betsy said...

Hello Nancy. It was wonderful to see your post pop up. How blessed you are to have your family nearby to help with the decorating and no, I could NEVER eat my lunch with my leg behind my back. :-) . That cold frame is amazing. I can't believe you're still getting veggies from it. The brownies look really good too. I hope you're having a wonderful December my friend.

Granny Marigold said...

Your seeds came already?? That's amazing. You're earlier than anyone else I know.
How sweet that your grands came to help decorate the tree and put out the manger scenes. Mine did those things too and I hope they will want to for many years to come. We are blessed, aren't we?

Julie said...

Your tree looks wonderful Nancy. Gosh your grandaughter sure is flexible! It won't be long & you will be planting out those seeds Nancy.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Betsy, Thanks! Love having two of our kids living nearby but have one in MD and one in VA also. So thankful for all their help. I am trying to learn more how to use my cold frame for best use. It may tet too cold soon to harvest anymore from it. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Granny Marigold, Yes, we are certainly blessed. I ordered my seeds this early because there was free shipping that day. Always looking to save money! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Julie, Thank you. Both Gracie and her sister Cali are flexible but Graie more than Cali. I could never do that even when I was young! Love having the Christmas tree up. Nancy

Linda said...

You are one dedicated gardener!! AND you are a busy bee with your baking and decorating! This time two weeks from now will be Christmas afternoon!
I'm not ready yet - but I will be.
Ihave finished all my Christmas cards but would love to send you one - could you email me your address? My email is on the side bar of my blog. I may have it but I'm not sure. Real names don't match up with blog names in my mind sometimes.
Oh, that granddaughter of yours can make a pretzel out of herself!! WOW!

Gloria said...

Hello Nancy, Happy Advent! Wow! Three degrees and you can still harvest from a cold frame! I didn’t realize they worked in temps that low. Your grandchildren look very sweet and so nice to have them helping helping you decorate. My three year old granddaughter “helps” by taking the ornaments off the tree, lol! Blessings!

Rain said...

Hi Nancy :) Oh those muffins!!! I'm very envious of your cold frame! Mine didn't work a few years back because it gets way too cold here. I'd love to try again though if I can somehow keep it warmer!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Linda, Thanks for visiting. I left my address in a comment on your blog. I just don't understand how our granddaughter can be so limber. I would break for sure! All of our kids will be together this Christmas. A rare occasion. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Gloriade, My phone said it felt like 3 degrees but it wasn't that cold. Pretty cold though. I have a winter cover over my cold frame also. I think it will be okay with 24 or 28 degrees below zero but can't remember which. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Rain, I put a winter cover over my cold frame plus the cold frame top. It is suppose to keep it till 24 or 28 degrees below zero. Can't remember which. I lost my greens after a certain low temperature last year so just waiting this year to see how cold it will get. I had thought maybe of putting warm water in containers and set in there if it gets really cold? Nancy

Rain said...

That's not a bad idea Nancy, what do you have to lose right?

Connie said...

Wow! You are already planning your garden and receiving your seeds. I love it . . . gardeners have hope and optimism in abundances :)
I love the photo of you clipping lettuce wearing your earmuffs.
God bless you both and your family, too.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
Connie :)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Connie! I love being an armchair gardener! Merry Christmas to you and Steve too! Nancy

Nancy, what a fun post to read. It always amazes me how you grow salad vegetables in your cold climate. I would think the dirt would freeze hard as a brick. And wow! You already have your seeds for next year, talk about being on the ball, I'm barely thinking about it.
I love that your granddaughters came over and helped you decorate your tree. Such sweet girls and I know they were so much company and fun to have around. Wishing you and your hubby a very Merry Christmas.
