I messed up…

sun-and-coffeeI lost a bucket full of potatoes. They froze, but only froze when the temperatures went down below -30. I guess I should have been smarter, but I was not. Our under home storage place is not deep enough and though -20 and above was still okay, below that, they froze solid and now are rotting. Looks like this summer, I will be digging the basement area deeper and sealing it better against the elements. I knew I had issues when I saw recently, snow build up around the trap door…

Makes me sad that I was stupid and I will learn from my mistakes. It was a whole big bucket of potatoes and I really wanted some today… πŸ™

This winter I have discovered that things are easy to protect and deal with at -20 and above. But that below -20 starts to make things rough and when you get below -30, life gets dangerous on top of everything else…

Lesson in life…

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
