So, I thought I’d just let folks know I was still alive and kicking! Summer in NH has been cold, hot, cool, hot, warm, hot and it’s continuing to not follow any particular weather pattern, which is typical for New England.
I’ve mostly been working but I’ve gotten a hell of a garden started, taken Teddy on a few old and new hikes, and have pretty much just enjoyed being here. Paul and Betsy, the RV park owners, are always wonderful and Paul’s been helping me eat the radishes that I’m growing. lol (I’m growing green and yellow beans just for him. After all, it’s his water!)
Another view from the Cockermouth Ledge Loop trail.
From the Manning Trail near Mount Cardigan, Bristol NH. I’m not in shape enough to complete the full 6.5 mile trail yet… lol… but I’ll get there! I made it to the top at least 1/2 dozen times when I was here last and I’ll do the same this year! Fall is absolutely the best time.
Cardigan Mountain and the fire tower at the top. Teddy and I saw a small black bear, a grouse, and a doe all within 5 minutes of each other. Teddy barked at the bear, ran from the grouse, and chased the deer. *sigh
And finally, my fabric planters/pots I bought on Amazon. This picture was taken 3 weeks ago. I went a bit crazy and planted strawberries, eggplant, peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, sunflowers, green and yellow beans, cantaloupes, lots of herbs, lettuce, fennel, arugula, swiss chard, beets, and radishes, and carrots…
