i wasn't sure what to expect when i dug up my carrots this evening but i was pleasantly surprised by 2 perfect specimens and one great goofy one. they also tasted delicious!
my spinach is doing a lot better now that i've moved it out of the reach of the cats! it will make a nice addition to dinner tomorrow night.
when i get back from the states in january, i think i might plant a few more flowers as i think one of the best thing i planted this spring was a set of 6 marigolds scattered between several different pots. it definitely brightened things up and provided a nice contrast to all the greenery. i'm also hoping to paint a few more pots with an old can of royal blue paint i picked up at the arts recycling centre. not sure what plants i'll put in when i get back, i just hope the broccoli, lettuce and herbs make it the 3 weeks i'm gone!
last weekend's christmas party for reuben's parents' business was such an awesome day. the whole day was a big surprise for everyone involved (except the coordinators, of course) so we certainly weren't expecting a first stop at the airport! the girls and guys split into two groups for the start of the day with the girls getting on the helicopter first.

we headed out over town and made our way toward the ranges - it was such a perfectly sunny and clear day too!

we flew up over the wind farms and even right by some of the big turbines.
