Letters from a Hill Farm
Wow! Now _that_ is frosty!!!!!!Mari-Nanci
Looks lovely. We are to record heat today. Maybe 90. Sigh....and I have a nasty, drippy cold.
That frosty morning has turned into a mid-50s, very sunny, breezy afternoon. Weather is so fascinating. Sorry it's so hot down there, Kay, and that you are sick. :<(
Brrr. I can't quite make out what the last picture is. Any hints? You've been quite a busy blogger today. I was beginning to miss you. :)
Iced over mud puddle with leaves, m'dear. :<)
I love these photos. They remind me of my childhood days on the farm. I'd stomp on the frosty crusts of puddles on my way to the school bus stop. We haven't had a frost yet, strange for mid-November.
I still stomp on them, Patrice. :<) It is such fun.
Can I ask you a question? For frost now and a cold winter, is your wood heater enough to keep you warm? I'm thinking of getting a Scandinavian wood heater and I like your one in your pics. Also, I love your writing about baking. Maybe you could write more about that and your favorite recipes you couldn't live without. When you have time. And, also, one last thing, the pic of yr dogs looks cute on the title page. The space between them almost looks like a heart. Am I imagining things? from Henrietta
Wonderful frosty photos, Nan! We had our first heavy frost this morning and it took the last of our tomatoes in the greenhouse. :-(
Thanks, Cath. Had you picked the tomatoes before the frost came?Welcome, Henrietta. The Vermont Castings stove is not our only source of heat. We also have an oil furnace, but we don't have to turn it on very often. We had a Scandanavian stove years ago, a Lange. Thanks for asking about more recipes. I can't tell you how much that pleases me. I love to share recipes and will continue to post them. And I do see the heart. I just love that photo. And it was just luck as you know if you try to take pictures of animals.:<)
No, I hadn't picked the last of the tomatoes because I haven't been too well for a week or so. The foliage has withered and turned dark in colour but we're not sure if the fruit are still okay. We're due another heavy frost tonight so that may well finish them off completely. No worries... November is quite late in the year to still have fresh tomatoes growing. One of our apple trees still has apples on too.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
