chrisb, sorry to hear about that. Lime is prevalent around NE TN. Lone Star is heading this way with the deer population as migrant as they are.

Brucellosis and Chronic Wasting Disease are also a threat to the deer population and a potential threat to spread to humans.

I still have tomatoes, but won't much longer. Jalapenos are going gangbusters.

Looks like gin might be a good choice

Well that's a fine collection of Gin. It's more of a hot rum day here.

Yes, after having that most unusual cold spell, it was nice to be out and about in the autumn sun, 15ļ. The salmon spawning in the Coquitlam river made for a nice end to the afternoon walk. Now it's time for some Rum, sorry I mean Gin, and a Jimmy Buffett song or two.
Cheers.

We have dropped form the 90s (32C) to the 70s (21C) in just a few days. Forecast is high in the 60s (19C) later this week. The long summer shifted into late fall in one fell swoop.

It was 46 (8C) when I rode the KTM to work this morning. If I don't get the heated grips soon, I'll be winterizing it.

That sounds like yesterday here. Today it's barely 10.

Had an unofficial Canadian Thanksgiving roasted butterflied chicken dinner this evening, and after a preliminary start at taste testing the even dozen of small batch gins referenced above, we came to at least two conclusions; more testing required, and not all distillers are on equal footing. One Austrian artisanal was a bare step above diluted “gun-wash”, while the Empress 1908 was reliably delicate.
Will report back later this week with more findings.

We have had frost on the ground, rooftops and car windows twice this week, today and Sunday. By mid morning on both days it was nice weather for finishing up those outdoor tasks.

I am nearly finished digging up and replacing 45 feet of underground drain pipe due to impenetrable root balls. The ground gets rather hard to dig up when it's frozen.
