Hunkering Down for Winter

In an unseasonably warm November, there has been a lot of extra time for outdoor stuff.

  1. Spreading mulch in the garden. So much mulch.
  2. Splitting and stacking firewood.
  3. Clearing the gutters. A lot of trees means a lot of leaves.
  4. Cutting down dead trees.
  5. Garden rearranging to prepare for spring. Setting up new raised beds and a straw bale garden, piling on so much ash and compost and wood chip mulch to percolate for next spring. I like to take down some of the fences and let the deer eat the dried up plants.

The return to our regularly scheduled wintery weather is just around the bend!
