**This is my favorite time of the year... football season HAS arrived, yummy comfort food cooking on the stove (today it's chili!) and I can envelop myself inside the grow room while the cool weather ushers in winter.**
In my haste earlier this week to start posting again, I had forgotten to share some close-up images from my current harvest.
I’m about ready to kick on the furnace to take the chill off of the day… pretty sad when our 11 week old black lab (Lexi) is shivering at my feet as I work on the laptop before college football kick-off.
**The day we brought her home over Labor Day weekend.
**Three weeks ago.
**This past week.
Just look at how much she has already changed!
I have to admit, I was unsure about getting a puppy since we have an older dog (9 years old, OCD beyond words and set in her ways), but getting this little gal (Lexi) has done wonders for not only letting our adult dog become more like a puppy herself, but this little fur-ball has helped get me out of my funk.
**First vet visit three weeks ago. _Puppy In A Box!_
So I have a few hours before the noon kick-off and I have some cleaning to do in the grow room. I need to get things organized in there, make up more nutrients for my girls and get my record chart and sheet up to date. Plus I promised hubby a nice pot of chili for lunch… HAVE a great Saturday all!
