My garden has been taken over …
Well, I finally dun it … I got me a chainsaw!
Last October, I did a fall sowing of a variety of different grains (rye, wheat, oats, triticale, barley) in test plots. I wasn’t sure I’d get good germination, although Dan Jason at Salt Spring Seeds recommends sowing grains anytime from late September through early November on the west coast of B.C. His fall-sown grains outyielded his spring-sown ones, so it was definitely worth a try.
Our neighbours picked up our mail from the post office, and the new Kuwfi 4G hub arrived, even sooner than I’d expected, given that it had shipped from China (I wish Canada would make decent electronics so that I could buy such items locally).
I’ve been having a few discussions with people regarding the safety of the mRNA vaccines being used to vaccinate against COVID-19. As the pandemic has worsened, the need to combat COVID-19, especially for those people who are particularly vulnerable to this virus, has resulted in rapid development and testing of new vaccines. Are these vaccines safe? It’s a fair question, and I’m willing to share my opinions on this subject.
It finally happened – we got two days of non-rainy, non-windy weather and, making the best of them, we got the Awen up on the grid and put the prop back on. Yee haw!
I hope you all had a happy Valentine’s Day!
So, I’m 55 and I think I can be allowed just a tiny bit of nostalgia. For those people who knew me in Keremeos, when I attended the Similkameen Secondary School, can you remember a grade 12 course called Community Recreation??
Another year older, and thankfully, not deeper in debt!
December is nearly over, and we’re still getting rain, even though most of the southern half of the province has been snowed on. Go figure? Actually, I don’t mind an absence of snow – we can still hike about on the roads with Brennan. I’m not sure what the rest of the winter will be like. I’ve heard that it’s supposed to be a La Niña year, so cold with lots of snow, but with climate change, I’m not sure if this will happen or not.
