Borrowed Buck, and A Snow Blower

Meet the scab. With Umbra's sperm on strike demanding more treats, and more girls, we, much like the NFL have had to turn to replacements. Hopefully with less disastrous results.

Information Dump from the Big E

After a crazy busy weekend including going to the Big E aka. The Eastern States Exposition, there is a lot going on, but very little time to write about it. So today I am going to talk about some of what we found at the Big E.

First and foremost was the information we got from the local Department of Natural Resources. If you live in Massachusetts or the surrounding states you are probably already aware of the problem of invasive beetles. If you aren't take a moment to read about them.

Tomatoes and New Hutch

 A lovely morning, and a very pleasant change from the rain and grossness of the past few days gave me an opportunity to get some photos of our rapidly expanding tomato plants. As you can see, this Cherokee Purple is thriving. In fact I had to re stake it because it was sprawling all over the place on us.

The Antici . . . . . . . . . . .


Of waiting for new babies. It can get a little frustrating. We are actually starting to wonder if Umbra ended up with being heat sterile this summer.

Quick Hit: Studio and Tomato Terror

 The Lady of the House got a picture of the studio as it gets into being operational! As you can see we are still transitioning in to the studio. However, the lights are up, the fans are up, and we are getting the art supplies moved in piece by piece.

Tomatoes, Pallets, and Babies on the Way!

Among the many things going on as we prepare for winter, we have been hoping for our poor tomato plants to give us a harvest before the first frost that seems to be very close given our 40 degree nights. While we haven't gotten a lot out of the tomato plants they are growing well, and have produced a few tomatoes that the Lady of the House has eaten. As you can see Above Right the one that the Lady of the House planted in a Dirt Bag has grown spectacularly well, and needs yet a new stake. We are considering digging up and potting some of our favorite tomato plants if they haven't produced by first frost so we can bring them inside.

Going Full Speed

Today's going to be light on photos, and have no new photos because we've been keeping busy lately and didn't get ahead on blog stuff unfortunately.

Updates on the Rabbits

Lately we've mostly been talking about other things, so I figured today would be a good day to touch on the rabbits and how things have been going with them.
