Drone footage shows rapidly melting Arctic sea ice sheet



Drone footage shows the serious effects of climate change on ice sheets in the Barents Sea, Svalbard, Norway.

Arctic glaciers and the North Pole ice cap have retreated, in recent years, further than ever before with temperatures there rising faster than anywhere else on the planet.

The United Nations Environment Programme says global warming is almost certainly responsible for the decrease in extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice.

Link to the hot pepper jelly video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTZwIUuhyqA&index=42&list=PL1681597E3AE8A69D

With the addition of six small Espelette peppers I had enough to make two batches of Hot pepper jelly, six 500ml jars. I use my dried Thai chillies instead of jalapeño peppers and quite a lot of it so mine is fiery hot great with cream cheese on crackers or bagels.

The Method:

Ingredients:
390 g finely chopped red bell
peppers
185 g finely chopped green bell
peppers
20 g finely chopped jalapeno
peppers
235 ml apple cider vinegar
50 g powdered pectin
1000 g white sugar
Directions:
1. Sterilize 6 (8 ounce) canning jars and lids according to manufacturer's instructions. Heat water in a hot water canner.
2. Place red bell peppers, green bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers in a large saucepan over high heat. Mix in vinegar and fruit pectin. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a full rolling boil. Quickly stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil, and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and skim off any foam.
3. Quickly ladle jelly into sterile jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the tops. Cover with flat lids, and screw on bands tightly.
4. Place jars in rack, and slowly lower jars into canner. The water should cover the jars completely, and should be hot but not boiling. Bring water to a boil, and process for 5 minutes.

There is always a discrepancy between the counter that the public can see on the video but I have never seen such a big one as there is this morning around 11,000 on the public counter and 27,000 on the realtime counter that only the channel owner can see.

Chitting potatoes and a look at the garden and hoop house.

Norland : Smooth red skin, shallow eyes white flesh. No internal defects, few irregular tubers. Some resistance to scab and rhizoctonia (black scurf)(Early)

Pacific Russet : Newly released, russet skin white flesh, very shallow eyes. Good yield uniform size. Great boiled or baked. Rated very high in Ontario industry trials for yield and uniformity. (Early)

Yukon Gold: Oval, slightly flattened tubers, yellow, skin light yellow flesh. Tubers can grow quite large and store well. Good for boiling baking and frying. Plants look similar to a tomato plant. (Mid Season)

Shepody : Long tubers, white skin, white moist flesh medium deep eyes. Excellent tasting potato. Excellent for boiling, baking or french fries. Some resistance to rhizoctonia (black scurf) (Mid Season)

Linzer Delekatass: The Linzer is an early-maturing and another waxy potato most popular for boiling or making salads. Potatoes are small & oval with yellow skin. Linzer Delikatess is one of our top selling potatoes to home and market gardeners .(Fingerling)

Novella : Novella is a new variety with a yellow skin and pale yellow flesh. Potatoes are good and of uniform size. Novella is suitable for cultivation on different soil types but can be susceptible to common scab. (Mid Season)

Roko: Oval potatoes with bright red skin and white flesh. Roko has a unique quality of producing high yields with uniform potatoes. Also excellent for over winter storage. (Mid Season)

Gold Rush: Gold Rush is a great alternative to Russet Burbank which has been a staple in many gardens for years. Gold Rush is an early maturing russet variety, great for boiling and baking. (Mid Season)

Caribe: Caribe is a high yielding oblong potatoes with excellent storage qualities. It is one of my favorite baked potatoes as it has a nice moist flesh when cooked. (Early)

Amarosa: AmaRosa is a mid-season fingerling potato with a smooth bright red skin, and deep red flesh. These creamy nutritious fingerlings are great for baking, roasting, and grilling. AmaRosa also make fantastically colorful potato chips as they retain their bright red color when fried.(Fingerling)

Nicola: Long to oval shape with a rich yellow skin and yellow waxy flesh. Excellent as a salad or boiling potato, wonderful for mash. Also excellent for baked potato dishes and roasting. Originally from West Germany, now widely grown around the world. (Mid Season)

Cara: A wonderful dry floury potatoes that I am growing from my own saved seed from last years crop. I find they best way to cook these is to steam them whole. (Mid Season)

Richard III's coffin goes on public view



The coffin of England's King Richard III has gone on public view until Thursday when his 530-year-old remains will be reburied.

A day of ceremonies on Sunday ended with a service at Leicester Cathedral where a tomb fit for a royal awaits him.

A crown similar to one he was said to have worn on the last day of his life was placed on the coffin.

Earlier, people lined the procession route in Leicester waving flags and white roses, the symbol of Richard's House of York.

James Bond behind the scenes car chase, Spectre comes to Rome



A car chase passing in front of St. Peter's Basilica, with the drivers carrying out hearts stopping stunts, can only mean one thing: James Bond has come to Rome.

The cast of Sam Mendes’ new film ‘Spectre’ descended on the Italian capital in the early hours of Tuesday morning (3 March) to film a standoff between Bond’s recognisable Silver Aston Martin and an unknown orange Jaguar.

Redpolls Visiting from the Boreal Forest



Another long video of the birds at the bird table for those of you who are interested in Birds. A special visitor that only shows up every 6 or 7 years, the Redpoll. The NB bird expert that is on CBC radio once a week, the Shift program I think, recently talked about them. I knew that I only have them at my feeders once every few years but I never knew why. He explained that they are native to the Boreal Forest just south of the Canadian Arctic and normally they would stay there in winter. There natural food is the cones on the White Birch and every six or seven years there aren't very many cones so they come south looking for food. They are almost tame because they aren't used to seeing humans and they love to go to bird feeders. Something else interesting that he said was that they dig themselves a snow cave at night to conserve body heat.

Winter Hiking


Out for a hike on one of our milder winter days and I decided to have some hot soup ant tea heated with the little camping/hiking stove that I just bought from China. It is an amazing piece of techknowledgy as you will see I have no idea how they can make it and sell it at this price point. This is a link to the one that I bought:

And then it snowed some more



Just some clips and a short time lapse that I took during a recent snow storm. Also a slow motion of a raptor of some sort at my bird table.

Cabin off grid Solar Project Update



Just wanted to show you the solar equipment that I bought recently. Now I'm waiting for better weather so I can start installing it. If these links work this is the things that I purchased from Harbor Freight. The prices shown are higher than what I paid there was $50.00 off coupon for the kit for example.

Winter's Night at the Cabin



A winter's night out at the cabin. A cold stormy night but cozy and warm in the cabin with the wood fire burning. Back by popular demand so to speak. My videos from the Cabin are always very popular and I get many requests to do another winters night in the Cabin video. Towards the end of the video I tell a story from my experience of walking the CAMINO DE SANTIAGO . I have done a couple of these walks and if that interests you these links are to a slide-show and some videos taken on these walks.

Larger Birds at the Bird Table




Another bird table video I was surprised to have crows feeding at the table. There are always lots of them around but I never seen them at the feeder before.

The difference a few days can make




Out for a walk to show you one of my favourite places on a nice sunny day then returned three days later after the big freeze to show the vapour on the water. A look at two funny little signs at least I think they are funny. Happy New Year every one, wishing you all the best for 2015.
