I hope it’s ok I did this. I didn’t see an October thread.
Been a couple of weeks without rain here. Cooler temps; nights in low to mid 50s (with the occasional 48). Been working on getting the fall/winter garden ready. Have an elderly that I’ve been helping out, as well as a friend that has cellulitis in her leg. Hope everyone is doing well.

So not much with hurricane Ian; my place had down branch. There were a few trees a stop sign or 2 and debris in my town. Yard waste is picked up weekly here.
Kale seedlings are coming up nicely. Slow start to the spinach though, ( should have waited another month when the temps are cooler)
Also have new Everglades tomato seedlings; and the ones that came up earlier are thriving-nice and bushy.
No more terra cotta pots; as they hold in too much heat. The Okinawa spinach in those were fussy; vs the ones in the plastic pots which are thriving with little care.

Had family in town, keeping me away from the keyboard.
We had our first real frost of the year.
Been using the wood stove in the kitchen in the afternoons/evenings.

And yesterday, we had a tornado warning!
At one point, rain was coming down sideways!
A few felled branches. No serious damage.

Midway USA has a nice discount on Cold weather sleeping bags, just ordered a few -20F Browning sleeping bags at $68 each, normally $210. Buy now and be ready for that cold snap (thanks to PJF for the heads up).

If you need storage shelves, check out Woot. They have some Origami folding ones for a great price. I have 2 different types of them already and they are pretty good.
Car went into the shop and the mechanic said it wasnt worth fixing. It still runs, but its days are numbered.
Still pretty warm here temps wise. The everglades tomatoes have flowers on them. Yard long beans are slowly creeping up.

After a mild start to fall; winter has quickly decided that it will arrive soon, that’s how it tends to go in Alaska. Organized the pantry the other day. We have lots of indoor projects to keep us busy.

Hurricane watch here. Need to get some of my plants in.
The Everglades tomato plant has tomatoes, the yard beans are doing well also. Started the Spinach again, hopefully more will germinate.
This is the time of year where we head outside; dry and cool.
Hope everyone is doing well.

Nicole came and went; just some rain and wind. Harvested a-singular, everglades tomato this morning. They are about the size of dimes, but gosh it was tasty. Beans are ripening and are good also. Kale is thriving.
This week has been very wet and we still have mosquitos
To all those in Upstate NY, I hope all is well
Happy Thanksgiving to all.

7” of snow yesterday and our almost new, city friendly snow blower is not up for the job. I’m not getting any younger and don’t want to wind up face down in the snow. It might be time to invest in a better solution.
December 4, 2022 at 7:33 am #55844

Still in the 80s here. Going to drop down to the upper 70s next week. Got a raincoat for under $50 at Columbias black friday sale. My poor Marmot was on its last legs.
A root canal treated molar snapped off. Just got a new crown on it a few months ago. Right now its being prepped for an implant. Had the roots removed and a bone graft put in. The one week check up looked good. I go in next month for another check up.
Lots of reorganizing, donating and throwing things in the trash right now.
