Sleep tight, garden

Put the garden to bed today by spreading straw over the planting areas. Still have some brave stragglers: the brussel sprouts are going strong (yay?) and the strawberries still have berries on them, silly things. Harvested the squash and the last of the salad greens, but there are parsnips still in the ground. The upright greenery in the back is marionberries which will continue to attempt taking over the garden despite the dropping temps, vicious monsters that they are. The lawn got mowed for the last time. Still have a little more cleanup to do, but for the most part, garden work 2015 is done.

Maybe someday we’ll do a cold frame or a greenhouse… Until then, we’re dreaming of spring to come.

Happy Halloween! Here’s some sweet deals for you

The holidays are upon us like ravening wolves!!!

Wait, okay, I’m probably over-reacting. But as soon as the Halloween candy comes out, I feel like the holiday season really kicks into high gear. (Um, maybe I’m eating too much of that candy?) But I’m delighted to offer a few sweet deals that won’t hit the pocketbook or the hips. If you’re like me and need to slip away for a few minutes to recharge, I hope these box sets — one of spicy sensual scenes and one of shorter holiday-themed stories from my alter-ego Elsa Jade — will taste just right.

But first, a picture of the terrifying ghost dog haunting my backyard. Yikes!
