Busy Bees

November 5th, 2008

We’re busy as bees here at Chiot’s Run. I’m trying to take advantage of these nice days to get all the end of the season garden chores finished up, so not much time to blog. Here’s a bee I spotted on the larkspur while working outside yesterday. Looks like he’s trying to get ready for winter as well.

What are we spending the days doing? We’re building a cold frame for our carrots (photos of that coming later). I’ve been watering like crazy, trying to make sure all the plants are well-watered going into the winter. There are bushels and bushels of leaves to rake, raised beds to make, weeding to finish, and mulching to do. Not to mention the cleaning of all the garden tools & pots and moving everything in to the garage for winter storage.

Is everyone else busy taking advantage of this beautiful weather?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


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.
