I'm surrounded by pine trees (for wind break), so I have pine needles, too. They're falling now. Since my garden is alkaline rich and acid poor, I spread the needles around every autumn. Perhaps it's working--my two surviving blueberry bushes made it through the summer!

Bertold, I have a mesquite tree and raking the pods is very similar to your cedar chores. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 15, 2014 at 12:02pm

The downside of having cedar trees. This is almost a daily chore for the next month or so.

Randall, comforting is the perfect word!  From the time my hit the floor in the morning until I turn out the light at night, it is comforting to know my little buddy is shadowing me. :) 

Cenek, I can offer no advice here except maybe an electric heating pad. The thought of 50 lbs. of cabbage boggles my mind.

I just finished processing 50 pounds of kraut-to-be. Used 1 pound of salt and a sprinkling of caraway seed. It took almost 5 hours to cut and masticate even though the kraut cutter saved me enormous amounts of work. Now the waiting begins. I have a light bulb under the crock and I'll be trying to maintain the temperature. Any tips?

Bertold, thanks for the assurance. I didn't realize how far my little Rio had withdrawn, also my cat. Last couple of days has seen an emergence of their funny personalities, so I know I did the right thing.  We three shall remain buddies with no further additions. :)

Daniel, I would simply love your room for a rainy day - curled up with a book and my pets.  However, sitting there in the sunshine in early morning and a cup of coffee would be equally wonderful.  I'm like others - envious, but happy for you. 

We have rain and 75F.  Once rain stops we are going out for a walk in the COOL!

Barbara - so sorry to hear you had to give up your dog, and she's a beauty. It's so hard, but it was the right decision - not fair for the smaller dog who got there first to be terrorized. I thought I might have a similar situation with my newest dog and the cat, but they've more or less negotiated detente.

Daniel, with a room like that, I'd prefer sunshine. I'm envious. The rainy day is somehow comforting, especially with the dogs hanging around. Living alone, I've found my new dog to be quite comforting. (I couldn't think of another word.)

That is a beautiful room, Sentient! And I love to look at the rain too.

Comment by Daniel W on October 12, 2014 at 12:37pm

All of the activity here is wonderful!  Still catching up - love the conversations and postings.

 

Not sure if this will work- if it does, here is my sunroom yesterday.  The Baigou, white dog is as dopey as he looks.  Charlie, the black dog, is much more interactive, and never sits still.

 

I wanted the room more for the rain, than the sun.  I love this weather.
