I have been MIA for a while now, a lot has been happening. I suddenly found myself unemployed because of the company downsizing. I am 18 month off of official retirement age, so am taking things slowly as I look for some part time work. The first thing I did was to go overseas and spend a month with each of my daughters, one in Europe and one in the US. Dear hubby stayed home and held down the fort. He did a wonderful job and when I arrived home I found a bumper crop of carrots in the veggie patch just waiting to be harvested. they are called red cored chantenay, and I will definitely grow them again - I love the short stubby shape. Considering I have just been in France, the name also sounds a little exotic!
I used three bales, and that did the entire garden!
I hope the fires die down soon, it must be horrific to be in those areas, My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
