Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Hello, Fall

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The leaves have been turning for about a week now and we've been closely watching our little maple tree that we planted back in June to see what color the leaves will be.  It was sold to us as an Autumn Blaze, so it should be a shocking bright red.  I'm not expecting much showiness this year since the tree is probably still trying to get its footing after 4 months in new ground. 

But I was pleasantly surprised to see it finally start turning.  The walnut trees are almost completely bare, having heralded the coming weather change early.

The bees are flying around like crazy gathering up what little pollen remains and getting ready for winter.  The weather couldn't be better for this...70s and sunny.  It feels like winter is far off today and for now...

Fall is here!
