I hear there will be frost in the foothills this week... just as our hydrangeas decide to bloom again. They were blue when we got them last year, and one of the three we planted stayed blue until mid-summer, but then they all eventually changed to pink. I really want them to be blue and have been reading how to do that naturally. I read one way is to mulch them with coffee grounds, and another is to give them a tablespoon of vinegar in a gallon of water once a week. I've been doing both. So, now they're lavender. We'll probably have to wait until spring next year to see if they turn completely blue.
I've been picking sage leaves before the frost arrives.
I use it for cooking, of course, and I sometimes add it to homemade soap for it's astringent properties.
I picked a cabbage, too but not from the garden... I found it at a garage sale.
It's really handy...
I've taken up a new hobby - learning to play an organ. No, I've never played a musical instrument before, but this organ is really fun. In fact it almost plays itself. I found it on craigslist for a song. O.o My answer to modern radio - thank you, I'll just make my own music.
I better go practice now. O.o
Have a great week and keep warm....brr.
