Fall is evident
As I was out today checking on the chickens and looking at the garden beds out back it didn't take long to notice that fall is evident everywhere. The trees are dropping some leaves and the weeds are loosing theirs. The grass is short but has made little seed heads due to the cooler weather. Maybe we will mow one more time this season. Its time to start mulching some of the beds for cold weather.
The mustard and turnip greens I planted a few weeks ago are ready to cut and can, so maybe that's a project for tomorrow. Also need to pick some more of the damaged corn to feed to the chickens. They can somehow tell the difference between the store bought corn and our own fresh picked dry field corn. They just wont eat the store stuff since I started giving them a little of the new stuff.
Time to edge our way into winter. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
