The weather has been so nice that I have been delaying the inevitable.   So this morning I woke up to this.

That picture was taken AFTER the frost had come off the grass. 

split in frozen hose

In the summer we use portable water buckets with float valves and hoses.  The hoses allow us to move the water around and we use portable net mesh fencing to divide our pastures.  I love the system- but it is not for winter! 

Can you see the blades of grass in each icicle?


The problem is clear.  Good thing the tear is near the end.  That will make fixing it easy.  We will just take off the hardware, cut off that portion of the hose, and put the hardware back on. 

Well I guess it is time to bring in the hoses and buckets and go to our winter water system.

Why not!  When that is what you have, that is what you eat.   Tonight we had a wonderful leg of lamb and Mike picked some mint and had a few tomatillos left, so he made some mint/tomatillo sauce (he is calling it chutney- but I am calling it a sauce)- it is delicious!   Tonights meal was a “dry run” for the Thanksgiving dinner.
