Preparing for Winter.

Do any of you do anything special to prepare for the Winter?

I stock up with cooking salt to keep the path clear and make sure the snow shovel is at the front of the garage.

Also - I make gallons of soup, stews, cottage pies etc., to keep in the freezer - restock my store cupboard with lentils, split peas, barley etc., - and make sure I have plenty of tinned tomatoes, kidney beans, butter beans, tuna fish and corned beef. If we do have heavy snow I can live from cupboard and freezer for quite a while!

This year I am also going to make lots of pickles, chutneys and relishes to give as gifts as well as to use myself. To that end I am off to do a raid on the farm shop as soon as they open !!

Scholar peruses robotic snow ploughs.

Many people get confused about the difference between peruse and study. The difference is quite simple. To Study something is to look at or into it closely with a view to understanding and learning whereas peruse the place where paddington bear comes from.
