    Old Man Winter Cometh

    I wonder if it’s part of the storm that hit us. Brrr.....

    Good Morning, Today is final prep day for my monthly trip to MIL’s. Was able to get some things done yesterday but it seems my list got bigger. DH wants a supply of taco meat too. Frosty this morning. Rained off & on all day yesterday and when I went to the store, coming out, heavy rain started to fall filled with little snow balls. Soooo.. it snowed here ! Not really considered snow, probably very soft hail, but I’ll take it. Momo, I hope your DH continues to recover. Homesteader, your remodeling is impressive. You inspire me to do something around here. Hoping your DH heals quickly too. Time to get motivated, have a great day everyone.

    What’s For Dinner 2019

    Hot wings, tater tots, & a couple jalapeño poppers, last night.

    Reminiscing Wagons Ho!

    Always worth trying. I do, but it doesn’t always work out the way I hope. I planted 2 tomatoes and 2 jalapeños plants in the front flower bed, when the trimmed our cedar trees. They have flourished. If the neighbors want to pick them, they can. We are getting enough from them so far. Out at the road, they just look like landscape greenery. Next week I am going to plant the peanut seeds, I collected from the bird seed, in the remaining flour bed out front. They get pretty yellow flowers. Maybe no one will notice it’s food. Lol.

    Raining... gray day. Plant covers are soaked. Told DH to leave them on while I am gone. Forecast says freeze warnings for the rest of the week. Looking like I might be able to travel between the storms on Wednesday, but, coming back on Sunday, I’ll have to watch for ice. There will probably be snow in Lordsburg, always pretty to see. Need to go to our little store, later, and pick up a couple of things to round out the supplies for DH. I have been working on my list for the trip. Still need to make “Angel” eggs for MIL & DH. Maybe make them some cookies too. Happy Presidents’ Day.

    Reminiscing Wagons Ho!

    Very true We2’s Last night I was thinking about the wheat that grew in the garden, a 4’x8’ section. At harvest time, we got, maybe, a pints worth of seeds. A pint of seeds.... ground into flour, makes about a cup, 6 months growing, using up limited garden space, requiring water daily, not considering the tares that were mingled, didn’t/doesn’t make sense economically, at least here in the desert. However, that pint of seeds could have been re-planted, using up all the garden space, etc.... still does not make sense to me, when that space could have been used for other plants. Then, to add insult to injury, I tossed some of the seeds out to the birds..... they wouldn’t eat them.... they are still spread out on the ground. Food for thought, I guess.

    Old Man Winter Cometh

    Cold...er here, highs in the 50’s, lows in the low 30’s. Hard freeze warnings and several inches of snow falling in northern AZ. Feels like winter. This morning, 48* and intermittent sprinkles. I expected frost on everything after that forecast.

    Reminiscing Wagons Ho!

    Seems like every time I go outside, I remember the adventures of Wagons Ho! I look at the clover/alfalfa the sprouted 2 years ago, that I let seed.... it’s taken 2 years for an handful of plants to grow. Thinking of how many plants I have purchased, that have withered up & died, after I planted them.... Considering and planning my garden, I know many of the seeds I have in storage won’t sprout. And how long it has taken to properly fix the soil..... Collecting seeds from vegetables we eat, and wonder how many will really grow? And, are they GMO? Did they get cross pollinated while they were growing? I’m considering building a tool shed out of scrap wood, thinking about the supplies needed... without a big supply of nails, screws and such... a daunting task. Making a a piece of furniture, without electricity, having to use hand tools to cut and sand the wood.... Ignore me, just thinking how grateful I am for what we have the we sometimes take for granted.....

    Can You Live without a Refrigerator?

    Because some of us are dealing with power outages...

    Surviving an epic snowstorm and power outage

    Very beautiful pics, Midnightmom. We have several dams here. The San Carlos is directly above us. It needs to be fixed, badly. Over the past 20 years, the reservation has almost completely drained it, but haven’t attempted to fix it. Our town was once flooded out, killing almost all the people who lived here, back in time. The reason they originally built the dam. We’ve experienced several floods, because they had release water, to keep the dam from breaking. It amazes me, they won’t fix it, they released most of the water, then whine, scream, & cry, that there is a water shortage.... in the desert.... We could use some snow pack here. I’ve heard rumors that say our ground water is at its lowest it has ever been and that, at the rate of consumption, can only last, maybe, 5-10 years, before it runs out.

    Surviving an epic snowstorm and power outage

    The storm cleared out yesterday. A light cool breeze is pushing most of the clouds north east against the mountains on the horizon. They predicted it would stay a couple of days, but only lasted 24 hours. If the clouds clear around. The mountains, they might have snow on them. It’s always pretty to see, from a distance.

    Mt_R, we have Black-chinned, Anna’s, Costa’s, Broad-tailed, Broad-billed hummingbirds and many more that migrate in the spring/fall. Because the move so quickly, sometimes it isn’t easy identifying them. It takes them less than a week to empty the 2 feeders. Stay safe, walking Koa. Hopefully that person will learn to slow down, before something bad happens. Re-wired one of our torch lamps yesterday. We had a ferret that couldn’t resist chewing on it. I had already replaced the other one, a couple of years ago. I have no clue why the little fuzzy faces are attracted to electrical cords. We ferret proofed the house, but a few cords were impossible to cover. We even had them covered with plastic sheaths, he found a small area without sheathing and destroyed it. I hope everyone has has a blessed day.

    Wow, that’s a lot of snow. We’re getting rain as that storm is moving through. Too far south for snow. I’m glad you are hanging in there. Hope you are staying warm.

    What are you canning today? Part 8

    Canned 3 1/2 pints of tomatoes. The plants are still producing, need to pick more today.

    Good Morning! Hoping everyone has a great day. I have a ToDo list going, we’ll see how much can be accomplished. Cloudy, but the birds seem to be loving it. Last night, the hummingbird wars were aggressive. At least 15 zipping around our 2 feeders, trying to get a spot. Our gardener was standing next to one of the feeders and stepped away because there were so many around him. Lol. Time me to get at it.
