The "Hurricane"

As usual it fizzled out by the time it hit Nova Scotia.  We got a very brief downpour and a bit of wind.  The only damage was to my biggest sunflower.  The whole thing uprooted.

The only prep we needed to do was to stake the fruit trees.  We are planning to espalier them but hadn't got around to placing the wire up.  It's done now.

Just a little wet.
Shockingly the power didn't go out.  That was my biggest worry as we just put eggs into lockdown.  Still have chicks for sale from the last batch if anyone wants them!


  1. Just give the boy an axe and he could easily be a young Jack lol.

    Glad you guys just got a little rain, sorry about the sunflower but glad it was your only casualty.

    Blessings Kelsie
