I’m an active person, therefore I love having things to do around the garden. If there’s not a book in my hand, I don’t like to sit still. During spring and fall, I especially enjoy doing outdoor chores. There’s just something about those days with crisp cold mornings and warm sunny afternoons! It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, it feels good to be active and to be outside.
There are no shortage of chores around here. I’ve been weeding the main garden up on the hill. Half of it was tilled under by the previous owner right before we came, half of it was full of buckwheat going to seed and weeds. The songbirds were loving it, as were the deer. I’ve been slowly working my way through and putting all the weeds in the chicken run. We also cleaned the chicken coop and whitewashed the floor. I’m experimenting with different white wash recipes, when I find a really great one I’ll share.
Today I’ll hopefully be heading to the Fedco warehouse sale (anyone else heading there?) and to Johnny’s Seeds to pick up some Fall Green Manure seeds for the garden. No doubt I’ll return home with more fall chores to keep me outside.
