Not Much Snow

I thought I would post a picture of the only measurable snow that we've had this year.  Not that I'm complaining!  If it was up to me, it would stay around 60 to 65 degrees all year round.  But then, we wouldn't have tomatoes.  Well, maybe a few warmer days so that I could get the garden going real good. LOL.

Speaking of the garden, I've been trying to plan on what I'm going to plant this year.  I want to try different things along with our garden standards.  One thing I plan on growing is radishes.  I didn't thing I liked radishes until Hubby forced asked me to try them.  I really liked them!  So this year I'm going to try growing them.  I've heard a few people say they can grow good ones and some can't.  We shall see.

I also have been looking into getting more fruit trees.  Apples, peach, and pear are what we're hoping to get. We already have one peach and one apple tree.  We DID have 4 apples and 3 peach trees, but between goats, sheep, and deer, well, they kind of did them in.  I'm hoping we have those problems fixed now.  Maybe, just maybe, I can get some fruit trees started and producing fruit soon.

Since it has been a little cold around here, we've been working on the house.  We've found a place that we can buy insulation board.  We got half inch to a full inch thick board.  We were told that the full inch is like having 8 inches of regular insulation.  When I say board, I mean something that's the size of drywall.  In fact, the half inch board LOOKS like drywall. So, we put the half inch up on the walls and the inch board on the ceiling.  This will help with the loss of heat in our basement.  Hubby put up some on the outside wall and you can already tell a difference.  Once we get it on the ceiling, it will be REAL warm in here.  It will be nice to have a nice warm house! I forgot what that was like! lol

Well, I'm hoping things have settled down to where I can start writing more often. I want to start making it a priority again.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, planner

You have reminded me that we need to think about ordering our seeds for 2015!

Glad your house is warmer after the insulation you have installed....must be worth the money you paid for it!
