the row you hoe

Planting a row.

After rain, sleet and snow the day turned sunny. Since I’ve had time on my hands I’ve dug the garden. It is much better done by hand than rototiller.

This afternoon I put in two rows of peas, and one row each of lettuce/spinach/greens and beets. We have some cold weather ahead of us, but they should be able to handle it. I hope to get the carrots, onions and spuds in within the next week. This will be the earliest I have planted.

I mentioned having time on my hands. I have been in quarantine for the past thirteen days due to having close contact with someone who tested positive with Covid. Tomorrow I am out of quarantine.

It has been trying but not as much so as it has been for the people who have tested positive. I know about ten personally. I know at least twenty in quarantine.

Willow plants a rock.

The people in the valley have been lucky while we have flirted with disaster. The area has been busy with people vacationing.

The District of Invermere’s Mayor, Al Miller and Provincial, Liberal, MLA Doug Clovchok have acted less like elected officials concerned about peoples health, and more like members of the Chamber of Commerce or Welcome Wagon, encouraging tourists to visit instead of heeding the warnings, against non-essential travel from Canada’s top doctors.

The Windermere Region is hard hit.

Hopefully no one dies on their watch. Like I said, we have been lucky despite everything.

Willow couldn’t be happier to have us home each day. I’m back to work on Saturday and looking forward to it.

    It’s appalling how ‘not bothered’ all the governments seem to be. They still haven’t vaccinated any of our key workers and the lockdown ends on Monday. As we are in a tourist area, our shop and our area will yet again be deluged with people from all over the country! We’re all dreading it! 😦

    Love the photo of Willow helping you dig! 🙂

      Your area sounds a lot like ours! Our politicians have given up. Everyone is past the point of listening to them. Their hope now is vaccinations will outpace the spread.

      Hi Julie, I did get a lot done around the house. It was worrisome, however as about ten people I know personally had Covid. We have had a bad outbreak in our area. Some of the people I know were very sick. The people I know are getting better now. You can thank your government for taken precautions early on. Take care.
