It's 2016!! October, 2016 actually. The time has just been blowing by me. I love this blog and really wish I made more time for it. The past few years have been full of camping, gardening and family fun. I actually just finished cleaning up all my vegetable gardens and harvested all of the final tomatoes from the plants. We had a frost warning so I decided to let the green tomatoes and peppers ripen in the house under some lights. Peter built me a really awesome shelving unit to grow seedlings on with hanging lights and it has worked well for the past two years. I also purchased a small greenhouse shelf unit from Lowes this spring to help me harden off my plants; I got tired of moving them inside every night and back outside every morning. This spring we also purchased a new 25' travel trailer. Without thinking, we parked it alongside one of the garden beds and so I didn't get much yield from my cucumber plants this year. They were far too shaded being between the house and trailer. Next year I will just be growing greens in that bed which should do just fine in the limited sun exposure.
Speaking of our new trailer, I think I will also start blogging more about our camping trips. We camp all over southern ontario and I think its a great topic to chat about. We have been to some amazing campgrounds and a few not so great ones. I love the outdoors, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, bonfires, hobo pies, and all things camping.
