November 1st. Is it NaBloPoMo?

I'm three-quarters of the way through the second bobbin of the Merino-Tencel. Here's a look at bobbin one:The second batch of roving seems to have longer runs of the teal - not that I'm objecting. I'm dying of curiosity to see what it will look like plyed.
I've been working on the gray/black scarf, as well. I won't bother with a photo - it looks just like the last pic I put up, only about twice as long.

We've been wrapping up the garden. Madman dug the rest of the carrots, and has been rototilling diligently, getting ready to put it to bed for the winter.
Tonight for supper was the last of the swiss chard, which unbelievably was still growing, despite cold, snow, wind, and rain. Served up with baked potatoes, and a nice slab of mooseloaf.
Only in Vermont.

What? NaBloPoMo? Again?

/sigh I just have to concede defeat before I even start. My month of November tends to chaos in recent years.

I "wrapped" up the garden with 10 pounds of green tomatoes. And no kitchen to preserve them. /sigh

Oddly enough we still have romaine in the garden. I also have no desire to eat it *g*

Cold this morning, really COLD, now where's the freakin snow!

I've still got Swiss chard, too, and of course kale and broccoli. I've not been eating the Swiss chard much, but on Saturday I made a kickass broccoli-kale-smoked salmon frittata. Mmmmmm.

Maybe Swiss chard today, since it's being so strong and valiant. :)

Mooseloaf! Never had it. Probably SHOULD! :)

Yummy singles. THanks for the PUSH. Now I'm NaBloPoMoing.
