So, do you remember this?
Here is what it looked like today:
There was a frost last night which really wreaked havoc on the Bag Lady's potatoes. Sigh. She is hopeful they will survive, but knows that even if they do, this will probably set them back. If they don't, there is still time to plant more, if she can find seed potatoes somewhere. So she will keep an eye on them and if they don't seem to be doing much, she will be looking for seed potatoes.
Sometimes her procrastination pays off. She had not yet planted her annuals in the pots that she puts out, so at least they didn't freeze! Her tomatoes got touched a little, but were protected by being close to the house. She will keep an eye on them, too.
That's the price you pay for living in this gorgeous north country! We do have good weather, too, you understand.
There is light until almost midnight now, and the sun comes up really early. It's been a few years since the Bag Lady stayed up all night, so she's not exactly sure what time the sun comes up. She is thinking that in the interests of accuracy, she may just have to stay up all night at the equinox, just so she doesn't mis-inform all of you! Of course, she may need some assistance, so if anyone is interested in staying up all night, drinking beer (or the beverage of one's choice) around the firepit, you are more than welcome to join her! All in the interests of accurate reporting, you understand!
Now here is something for the little kid in all of us:
