I milked this morning. DH came in and told me Annabelle, my milk cow's daughter of two years ago, had calved so I had to go back and see. She is just like her mother. As soon as I got too close she headed off.
They are predicting a freeze in a day or two so I got out after milking and picked the last of the peppers. They didn't really do well this year, especially, the bells. That pointy looking green one is an Ancho pepper, pretty hot. Ask me how I know! I think all the banana peppers are hot too which is way more hot peppers than I need. I may pickle some to go with beans.

This afternoon, we will both go out and install the cattle panel hoop over the lettuce and spinach plot. The lettuce is up; not the spinach. It may freeze out anyway, but at least I will have a place for early salad fixings for spring. I think/hope I have enough greenhouse plastic left to cover it.
I have a few pots to bury next to the old chicken house under straw for winter: the rhubarb, virginia blue bells and a red violet from my sis, and three daylily seedlings.
