the latest

What's been happening on the homestead?  Well, it is fall and the garden has been put to bed.  Now I'm working on gathering all the leaves and wood chips I can for next year.  I had an astounding amount last year, but it all ran out well before the gardening season was over, so I need more.  However much I have I need more.  I guess that is the way of compost, you just need more.  I am planning on enlarging the strawberry bed and I'm going to put cardboard and wood chips down so the ground is ready next spring.  I guess that is the main thing I'm doing this fall-- prepping for spring.
