So many distractions this year. First it was all about the coast to coast trip I would do solo, to meet up with bloggers and artists I have met online over the last 12 years. To everything grinding to a halt as the virus swept across the world, taking the lives of many older people who had health issues, wait we are in those categories now what.
Well here in NH it was all about toilet tissue, who would have thought to stock up on that and seeds for gardens. The seeds I thankfully had purchased so I could get a jump start on my garden when our winter weather broke but we really had a bearable winter and me with equipment to move snow lol and we had rain, lots and lots of rain in late April early May. Perfect growing conditions except a little cooler than most crops I grow like.
So I threw caution to the wind and said the heck with frost possibilities until May 31. Well it worked perfectly I lost nothing to the cold, man it has been 85F to 95F I swear all through July and Aug with hardly a drop of rain until the day the Bobcat sat seeking shelter from the thunder and lightening and the 1 1/2″ that fell.
So how did my garden grow? Beautifully though it was extra work watering each morning but it got me outside a lot more too which is good during a pandemic they say.
Here are some shots from the place now before we batten down the hatches and prepare for the winter of 2020 as my header photo suggests we get snow lots and lots usually and today I am thinking about our gulf coast and all the people in the path of not one but two nasty storms bringing 15′ storm surge possibilities to their beautiful land and wildlife filled locations. I will pray as well as pray for all the poor animals they leave behind.
I will sign off for now stay safe wherever you find yourself in this world I am hoping to take a short ride to Maine to social distance with a childhood friend I have not seen since 1974 lol should be nuts!
