First Quarter Moon Waxing in Capricorn

Neptune and Uranus Retrograde

Celtic Tree Month of Reed

Sunny and cold

We are finally having some cold weather! It snowed in Western and Central MA, but not here. We had some winds, and it’s colder. It’s supposed to warm up for the weekend, so, while I will take in some of the garden decorations and more pots, I’m leaving out the furniture. Wouldn’t it be fun if we could sit outside over Thanksgiving weekend?

Our virus numbers are going up, and nobody who’s supposed to handle this is doing so. Governor Baker, who did a better job than I expected early in the pandemic, is now acting like the Republican he is and not shutting things down again. The curfew means he’s treating us like naughty high school students, although I don’t miss the drag racing at 2 AM waking me up.

We are hunkering down. Instead of the big Thanksgiving dinner in Maine, with everyone at the VFW Hall, we are having a small dinner at home, just those in the house. We will do a Zoom dessert party to catch up.

As someone online said, better a Zoom Thanksgiving than an ICU Christmas.

I dragged the brush the landlord cut and left to the brush heap in the back. The lawn guy promised to come on Saturday and suck up the rest of the leaves. I cut back a bunch of stuff in the beds, and will cut back more.

The big pots will probably come in sometime next week to overwinter in the garage. I’m leaving the furniture out as long as possible. Even when it’s cold, I like to go out and sit for a few minutes.

I still have to oil the teak furniture one more time before I put it away for the winter. I might to that this weekend.

It will be interesting to see where we are next year at this time, and what the garden adventure will have been.

I planted some organic lemon seeds in a pot and put them in a sunny window. Even though it’s not “growing season” I wanted to see if they would sprout. If they do, I’ll try the apple and pepper seeds I’ve been saving.

The last of our garden tomatoes are almost ripe from sitting in a sunny window. We will eat them in the next two days and enjoy them.

Soon, I will have to decide which tomatoes I want to grow next year, even though they might be seedlings here and then be transplanted elsewhere.

I won’t have a post next week, because next Thursday is Thanksgiving and I’ll be cooking – so it’ll be two weeks before I check back in with you again. Have a safe and happy holiday.
