Just stuff

I spent the day just doing mundane stuff. Cleaning the chicken house and putting in fresh bedding and having the manure hauled to the garden and spread. Also worked in the asparagus bed and got the weeds and grass out of it and ready for mulch. Same with the bed that contains the walking onions. The strawberries are ready for mulch too.
Back to the house, the dog has tracked mud on the deck and front porch from being under the deck where it cooler. So I got a bucket and soapy water and gave both of those a good scrub for what ever good that will do. At least they will be clean for a little while.
The daytime temperatures here are perfect for working outside. Highs in the 70's during the day and 50's at night. Beautiful fall weather with the leaves starting to fall. We are supposed to get rain tonight in our area. If we don't I think I will spend tomorrow cleaning up the rental property and getting it ready to rent again. If we do get rain it will be a good day to stay in and make pumpkin butter to can. But that's all for another day. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
