There’s a Freeze Warning for us tonight, so we still cannot plant. Forecast looks good beyond tonight though, so next week we’ll pull the trigger and get it in the ground. From a gardening point of view, living far North is not so good — It just requires more efficient gardening given the shorter growing season.

Had to pick up a new rototiller as the old one reached its end-of-life.

Spent some time with the crossbow & target, and was reminded of its silent capabilities. Only problem with that is the 165 lb draw which requires a hand crank to get it set. One shot. Wonder if they make a semi-auto version… 😉

 
So what have you been up to this week?
