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… 🙁

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…
