That wind oh my goodness!
A Nor’Easter blowout for sure. Thank goodness we didn’t have any snow!
That crazy ole wind blew and the trees swayed and snapped and the power lines went down.
Yes, Sweet Potato Hummus, recipe here.
I think you’ll like it.
Have you ever notice after a horrible storm, the next morning is so bright and beautiful. Or does it just seem that way because you are grateful to be alive?
Though it is sad to see the destruction, I love the smell of pine that is heavy in the air from all the broken branches and limbs.
Saturday morning we started cleaning up right away. The winds were still kicking up more than we would like.
The chickens hunkered down under the boxwoods during most of the storm, Papaya didn’t even want to come out of his run. By Saturday, everyone was glad to be back out and enjoying the sunshine.
We lost electricity Friday morning but felt pretty fortunate that we were only out for 24 hours.
That wind whipped the farm stand tents, but they survived. A neighbor came up and helped us get the farm stand straightened up and fallen trees and other debris cleaned out of the driveway parking area. Before long our customers were back.
Later today I hope to get some seed trays started. Gladiolas, Lily and Echinops bulbs waiting for me to plant are singing to my heart. It is still too early to put those in though, but I’m itching to dig in the dirt. Of course, I’m ever hopeful for a successful growing season that will provide the extra bounty for the farm stand and substance for our souls.
Other garden dreams for this season include replacing all the Rosemary that died from this harsh winter. A new Lavender hedge is on my list also. I plan to enlarge the wildflower meadows too.
Oh, and sunflowers! Armloads of sunflowers and zinnias and cosmos, well you get the idea.
So many digging in the red dirt dreams, if this tired out of shape body will just let me follow through…
That’s all for today.
