Take a Peek at our Week - Nov. 11-17

This week marked the end of fall and the beginning of winter - despite what your calendar might say. I'm currently sitting in front of the wood stove sipping hot tea watching the snow gently fall outside. It's a little early for serious snow here in Maine, but I'll take it! The mud and rain was getting to be a bit much.

One morning saw temperatures hovering around 11 degrees Fahrenheit, so it is definitely time to dig out the winter hats and mittens.

Unfortunately, I had to travel down to Portland midweek to tape a segment for the magazine news show 207 that airs here in Maine, and the dress I had picked out wasn't the best winter wear! But the segment should be fun (watch next Tuesday on NBC in Maine!).

Peg Keyser and I (and the stand-in chicken we "borrowed" for the day!) chatted with hosts Rob Caldwell and Amanda Hill about my new book 101 Chicken Keeping Hacks. Peg was the photographer on the book who took all the gorgeous photos and she's a guest host on 207 as well, so it was for her to be on the other side of the microphone so to speak.

Other than that, it was a quiet week at home. Before the weather turned, I mulched our berry bushes and rose bushes with straw from the coop and also mulched the strawberry rhubarb garden beds.

And this week I did manage to get my garlic planted, just in the nick of time. We tilled the garden, then I planted 100 garlic cloves, 20 shallots (first time trying to grow shallots!) and 150 assorted tulip and daffodil bulbs. I really want to see some nice color come spring! 

But before we can even think spring thoughts, we have to get through the next, oh...20 weeks or so of winter! Enjoy this peek at our week.
