Phil and I were up early this morning and somewhere around 5:00 a.m. the power went out. Apparently someone had hit a pole which required the pole to be replaced but hadn't knocked off the power. The power company put up a new pole and we only lost power while they switched the lines to it. I hope the person who hit the pole wasn't hurt. It was so early that I have to wonder if they fell asleep at the wheel.
I was up anyway so started on the green beans that I got yesterday. I learned that two pounds of green beans is a whole lot of green beans.
I also got down to the garden today. I had picked up some plants since my starts really haven't done well. I cleaned out the rest of the raised beds except the herbs, the cucumber plant and the peppers (which I just couldn't bear to pull up yet), then dug some compost out of the bin to top off each bed with. I planted broccoli, cabbage, savoy cabbage and cauliflower. Not much to see here... yet.
I am going to go out in a little while and plant the last long bed with a row of red torpedo onions, red Russian kale and probably some garlic.
I also have a few other chores to do. Two gallon bags of meat are thawing to make sausage with and the rest of the bacon chunks are thawing as well and will have to be rubbed with the cure when they are thawed. I also still have those pears to do something with. I am thinking that pear sauce sounds nice....and easy.
