Back to work with dirt under my nails!

Nice, eh? I’ve scrubbed and scrubbed but there’s still garden dirt there, lol.

This weekend was jam packed with all sorts of fun things.  On Saturday we drove to NH to visit with Duhdee’s parents, brother and niece.  Monkey had a really good time, he played with his cousin very nicely.  After we left Grammy and Grampy’s we stopped to pick up the 1/4 cow we ordered a few weeks ago from a local farm.  Mmmm, beef.  Grass fed beef even, I’m so excited.

On Sunday we had to disassemble our garden.  The temperature is going to drop into the 30’s tonight 🙁 We spent hours outside picking all the tomatoes we could find and chopping down the jungle the plants had created.  We finished draining our rain barrel, swept sidewalks and chopped down the remains of our day lilies.  Duhdee reorganized the shed so the snowblower is now more accessible than our garden tools *sigh*  Are you getting the picture that I’m not a fan of the winter? 

We now have about 60 lbs of green tomatoes on our kitchen table.  We’re hoping most ripen so we can freeze more for sauce but we can always have piccalilli if they don’t 🙂

Oh, and…IEP, done.  We did the final review and we’re sending it out today.  Phew.

    I’m so glad we finished the IEP I can’t even express it, lol. We sat on it for 3 days last week b/c we were just so wrung out over the whole process. It’s signed now so all that’s left is to finish the transition process.
