They say it is a sure thing.....death and taxes!

Actually to be fair to him everything and anything got in the way of him doing them. This whole weekend we had people popping in to "help" out with things. The biggest obstacle being daughters Saturn in the lane that needs something done to stop the oil from springing out like a river. The car now after two days work, is a jigsaw of pieces, I hope they know how to put back together later this week. Never seen such a mess. But I just observed and went about mucking up and working in the garden.
We had killer frost Saturday morning. Glad I had everything in the garden covered. Then -3C Sunday morning and -4C this morning. It is to get warmer this week, but rainy as well. At this point I shall take what we can get, as long as it warms up some. I am tired of the cold.
Saturday it was sunny but cool. I moved all my herbs from pots in the house into the garden plot. Watered them and then at night covered them. I checked on them again this morning and all is doing well. Then I planted more seeds in the left over pots.

I suspect the blackflies will be here by weeks end. That will halt everything lovely in the garden, as working outside will be near impossible for 10 days. The duration that they stick around here.
Today I shall be walking or biking to the village 5Km away to sent our taxes away and house tax. I would dearly like to get some top soil at the Hardware store, but unless I drive the tractor in, that isn't going to happen.
Other then that I am going to move more manure to the new garden plot. Do homeschooling and cook supper maybe knit a little.
