I often wonder if a gardener works harder in the spring or the fall because it seems like both seasons provide a pretty good workout.
The grapes and raspberries have been pruned, blueberry bushes moved, and cherry trees transplanted.
Two of the raised vegetable beds are clean and covered while the tomatoes are still surviving the night time temps in the 30’s under the raised bed hoops.
There may be a few more tomato sandwiches in my future which is a very good thing.
Boxwoods, lilacs and rose of sharon have been moved, several beds of perennials deadheaded, and some extra perennials moved to the property border.
A storm door was replaced, wood pellets have been stacked, a drainage project is underway, fall touch-up painting is on the to-do-list, and the driveway is being seal coated today. I haven’t even mentioned the leaves – oh the mountains of leaves. I’m exhausted. 🙂
To regain my strength for the new week, there is chili in the crockpot, apple dumplings cooling on the counter, and pumpkin ale in the refrigerator awaiting a cold glass with a cinnamon sugar rim. I’m feeling rejuvenated already. 🙂
But, I had some fun last week too. There was a Master Gardener meeting at a local winery, and it doesn’t get much better than gardening and wine. Here’s to you having a great week!
