Good morning and welcome again to the Home Repair shop.
This week on the high desert saw our first visit of Winter. Cold enough in the sky to snow 3 inches of heavy wet stuff, but not cold enough to freeze on the ground. Thus a rare sight of tomato plants covered with snow, but not frozen and blackened. They'll live a while longer and hopefully ripen some more fruit before it finally gets cold enough to freeze.
I cleaned up the pump house/cold storage to receive the winter squashes (Hubbards and Acorns) and the storage onions. There's still a whole row of way-overgrown green bunching onions out there we'll pick as long as it can survive.
I put away the freeze-sensitive drip system timers/valves and drained down the big irrigation pump.
We are also continuing our flagstone paving project, adding another 200 SF of area on the east side as a buffer in the War Against Dust (and mud).
Oh yes, and we finally broke down and made a fire in the woodstove for a little warmth.
Tell us what you have going on at your place. Maybe we can help out with advice and encouragement for your own projects/emergencies.
Thanks for stopping by.
