The hoses have been pulled in. The outside water has been turn off. The chickens have been moved on top of the garden.
It’s official the growing season is over. Typical farmer mentality, all there is to do now is plan next years garden. Giant fold front moving in end of the week. If you listen to the old timers, it’s just the beginning of things to come. Bumper acorn crop this year. The wooly buggers that usually have a black stripe are ALL black. Certain color flowers bloomed while other colors did not. These are indicators of a cold winter.
I have plenty of crafts, cooking and knitting to keep me busy till the seed catalogs start showing up in January. Presents to wrap, dinners to enjoy, and family to see before we get out there to get the gardens ready.
