Haven't felt like doing much the last few days but managed more than I thought I would.
Tuesday, I drove 4 hours for a course so I didn't feel like doing much. Especially when I had to get up at 5 am and 7 am has been a struggle!
Wednesday, I hit the advance polls and voted in our municipal election. Thought it was a good way to honour the soldiers killed this week. And I managed to do down a bunch of tomatoes for the freezer. There are still a few more ripe ones to do and a few more that I'm waiting for them to ripen. And then I'll make sauce with them all, probably into a pot of chili. And I ran the dishwasher.
Yesterday, I managed to work in the garden for a little bit. I pulled all my turnips, keeping the few that were big enough to do something with out. I pulled out a few plants that didn't have anything worth harvesting on them. I pulled a few beets to give to my neighbour and I pulled a few carrots. I also got a bunch of plants in the ground out of pots where they've been for the summer. I hope they survive - they were some rarer plants that I dug up from my Dad's place, knowing that we would probably get it sold this year.
Tonight, I want to unpack the dishwasher and do a little more in the garden. Maybe harvest the rest of the beets and a few more carrots?
Over the weekend, I want to finish with the harvest and also clean up my house. I have to finish purging and tidy everything up and then call one of the charities to come and pick up all the dang boxes I have in the front of my garage. I need to create room for the stuff I'll be bringing from my Dad's place. I'm keeping a few things but I'm also going to be bringing the sale stuff to my house. I'm in a bigger city and we'll get a better price for everything if we do an auction here.
I also need to make a pot of squash soup before they go off and I have some zucchini to shred. I should make the zucchini bread, too.
I just have to pace myself - do 30-45 minutes work, take an hour rest.
