February 2021 Catch Up

February 2021 found us married for 49 years and still going strong. Our baby girl had her 44th birthday and her big brother still loves her very much!

We had eight days of snow and sleet this month in 2021 and nine days of rain. We sure hope to get that moisture again in 2022 because we are in a drought at the moment.

Some of my seeds for the greenhouse and garden arrived on February 22nd and now I’m ready for warm temps. We got some new lumber for new shelving in the greenhouse and it was a great start for growing.

Crushed egg shells for the garden to get rid of Colorado Potato beetles. It works I promise you!! Just sprinkle in the rows with the fertilizer and drop your potatoes on top of the crushed egg shells. I saved them all year!

February was a slow month and very cold and that kept us hauling in firewood and feeding all the animals extra nutrition.
