Can you believe this? It's November and my greenhouse plants are green and beautiful! This is spinach and strawberries.

This is my yellow climbing rose plant I rescued from a poor growing site.I sprinkled  dill seed around it. If you allow dill weed to dry, save it and sprinkle it on your buttered bread for grilled cheese or grilled tuna fish. So EXCELLANT!!

In November I pick my brussle sprouts , save the sprouts and store the leaves and stalks in the barn for the horses, sheep and goats.

Never pick your brussel sprouts before the end of October or mid November. They will not be ready.During the summer the plants will grow sluggishly. That's because they are a cool weather crop.Leave them alone. The first crock of sauerkraut sits atop that table.I have 30 cabbages to do. Today will be sauerkraut day.
This is my animal family gathered around the dining room trough. It is filled with hay and brussel sprout leaves. They go bizerk over brussel sprouts. They love the leaves the best.That is not a green sheep. That is a sheep who will not move when you are throwing hay down the trap door.

I dug up the last of my potatoes. Gus saw the camera and raced over to pose. He does this all the time. Was he a show dog before I got him from the rescue??
