We’d love to have you come for a visit! Please leave a comment letting us know you stopped by! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Our Precious P.F.

1 Month New!

Garden Journal/Weekend

I made a brief entry in my garden journal.

It is another overcast, very cool, windy day here. We thought about hiking but so far we’ve been hanging at home putzing on necessary things. Apparently, we have appraisers coming again this Tues. in another attempt to refinance. If it works out positively this time, it will provide the funds for the trip we have been tentatively planning later this month/beginning of July. It should be an interesting few days… Anyway, nothing exciting or celebratory going on here this Memorial Weekend. Today is my Mother’s bday though so I’m going to call her as soon as I’m done this. Then, it’s back to work cleaning up for that appraisal. ๐Ÿ™„


Changed our frost zone…

to 2-3 after looking at a more detailed map from the local Extention Service (which can be seen here). Downtown, closer to the Inlet, it is zone 4. We are colder due to our elevation on Hillside. Itโ€™s very evident in the spring and fall – there is at least a two week โ€œlag timeโ€ – our leaves bud out 2 wks later than those lower than us and our leaves change color about 2 wks sooner. It takes 2 wks long, at least, for our snow to leave also, etc. It sure does cause me envy to be seeing people in โ€œtownโ€ mowing their lawns, turning dirt in their gardens, having bulbs bloom, etc. so much sooner than us. ๐Ÿ˜ Oh well. I get over it every year tooโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‰

I added a new link for garden help too specially aimed at AK gardeners but could also be useful for others in cool/cold zones. (In the sidebar under Sites for Garden Help.) Have fun!

Memorial Weekend

I’ve been so preoccupied that I totally spaced that this weekend was a holiday. I don’t know if dh remembers either…he hasn’t mentioned it. Obviously, we don’t have any plans for it. ๐Ÿ˜

Maybe we’ll come up with something spur of the moment…

For all of you out there that do have plans, be safe and have fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
