First frost 2021

The first frost came to 12 Dog Farm in the early morning of 12 November, 2021. It was almost two weeks late. We usually have the first frost in the last week of October. I have not checked the native persimmons on my property for the Winter forecast, but I am hoping this late frost means a mild Winter.  Hey I can dream. Okay? No Debbie Downers here.

The photo shows the Sweet Potato harvest. It weighs in at 6.5 pounds. So it is a Bantam weight entry from one 10 inch planter. I am planning to plant three pots in the Spring. Maybe, just maybe that will triple my harvest in early November 2022. The last of tomatoes after the frost can in at 3.2 pounds. I guess that is classed tiny Bantam weight. I see Green Tomato Pie in my future. That recipe is my archives. I will try to repost but I am technically blog challenged.

Tony and Seamus in the basket

These are the new kittens we grew on the farm. They are three pounds each of mischievous. If I could harness their purr motors, I could sell the energy back to my grid. LOL.

I am at home now and trying to adjust to being retired, Hopefully, that will translate to more regular blog posts. Thank you for reading my blog. Blessings to you and be safe wherever you are.
