Getting ready for fall

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind around here.  Here are some of the fun and not so fun things that have been keeping us busy.

* A 3 day trip to the Mother Earth News Fair at the beautiful Seven Springs Mountain Resort in PA…….So much fun!


*Picked lots of peppers!  Some peppers we hung to dry, some we sliced and put in the freezer, and some became hot pepper jelly.

*Of course, there is always plenty of firewood to be cut, split and stacked this time of year.

*This stinky big guy has come for a visit with some of our older does.  Given his pungent presence, I am more than ready for him to finish his visit and be on this way.

Also on the completed list of tasks this past week were…

* Weeded the grapes, blueberries and raspberries in preparation for fall mulching.

* Picked and froze the remainder of the corn

*Tilled most of the garden – planted cover crop

*Pulled summer annuals out of flower beds  and started decorating for fall.

Now that fall is offically here, there is so much to be done to get ready for winter but we are certainly making great progress.  I have to admit that I am really enjoying the cool, crisp air and am looking forward to seeing the flakes fly!
