Too Many To-Do’s

October 8th, 2008

There’s so much to do in the fall garden. With all of the canning & preserving, I’ve spent most of my time indoors trying to make sure we can continue eating locally this winter. So my list of to-do’s in the garden keeps getting longer and longer. What is on that list?

I’m sure I’ll keep adding more as I cross things off, I don’t know if I’ll get it all finished this fall.

So what does your to-do list look like for this fall?

    Mulch with hay over garlic
    amend soil along fence
    sow cover crops everywhere
    wait for spring

    Wow. Since I’m planning a bigger and better garden next year I’m exhausted knowing your list is similar to mine (or what mine should be). I’ll also add: get some rain barrels (we only have well water), build a small chicken coop, locate heirloom veggies.

    Yeah, I know. It makes me tired too. But I keeps me busy and in shape all fall.

    I’ve got to admit, my wife and I just a bit jealous of your having so much to do in the garden! :)

    We grew our very first plant this year- a tomato plant! And finally, after much hardship (for us, at least!), there is a little green tomato on its way!

    Love the blog! I’ll be coming back!

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
