Of course I got to spend some time with the new baby! She is so adorable! I still love the puppy, just not the messes she makes! My apple trees came in so I dug six holes and got them planted today. I didn't realize they would have such a good root system and be the size tree they are! The tilled area wasn't deep enough so I got a good, sweaty workout digging! The nights are cool but the temps are getting into the low sixties during the day. It felt like eighty while I was digging! I'm so thankful for cooler weather since I've been working outside so much this week! I have been raking leaves and now have eight bags full! I need that many more for the raised beds. I'm really trying to get the soil amended correctly so our veggies will produce next summer. I dug some of the basil and brought it inside so we'll have fresh basil for awhile. I also want to try growing some other herbs inside, too.
I'm not ready for Thanksgiving, by any means! I don't have a thing cooked yet! I don't usually cook anything ahead of time anyway! Just the day before! Everyone will be here that day and my Mom will bring food, so there will be plenty! I hope your Thanksgiving will be a nice one! I truly hope to write some next week! Have a great weekend! Blessings from Bama!
