    It’s pouring down here, looks like a day where I’m not going to get much done.

                        So far all I got done is watering. I spent a good part of the day up on a platform hoping the wind would lessen so I could zip line the falls, Niagara Falls. No such luck and will try another day.

                        I've still got 3 solar panels to attach to the upper rail near the greenhouses but now I am having a debate with myself about their placement. I only want to climb up there once and not have to go back up to change things about. Debate to continue until tomorrow morning..

                        I shall go out now and hunt weeds and give the squirrel a hard time :)

                            Been out in the back garden doing a bit of a tidy up on the shady border. Picking out weeds, trimming back the climbing rose a bit, pruning the wisteria etc.

                            I’ve also been digging up and dividing opiphogon nigrascens (sp?) ready to grow on and take to the new house (if we ever sell!)

                            Trimmed back some lavenders that had finished flowering in the back and done a bit of dead heading.

                              I'm starting to move some of my plants into a second indoor growing area in my cellar. It is a full cellar with 8 foot ceilings so lots of vertical space. Got the height of the led lights adjusted and the timers and fans set up plus the capillary mats and water receptacle ready. I have some rosemary plants and chillies (Shineybrids) that I want to keep going over the winter, or least give them a place to hibernate without getting frozen. It's still warm here but the days seem to be shortening at an alarming rate and I'll be able to control the day length down there!

                              I've also finished arguing with myself over the solar panel placements and will try to get those installed today. Then I need to run up to the store to grab some more potting soil before it all gets snapped up. They've now marked down the 50 liter bags by 50% and I want to get a couple for me and several for my son. His birthday is coming up and I know he would consider that a dandy present :)

                                Back mid afternoon and got lawns mown as I had hoped earlier and tall plants deadheaded in prep for tonight’s wind and rain. Tomorrow looks a washout :sad:

                                Got email to say my plant order will be delivered tomorrow:)

                                Sorted stuff at my brother’s residential home...spoke to manager and case worker. At times my brother is as coherent as ever he was but now n then a tad jibberish :noidea: Difficult :noidea:
