We’re basically a month away from winter. Just enough time to squeeze in another weekend of work in the garden.
Never mind that winter is forecast to arrive on Saturday with our first snowfall of any substance.
Back at the start of October, I said that I had four things I wanted to do in the garden before winter:
- Hang the gate
- Edge the garden
- Put in raised beds
- Spread manure
I’ve still not made great progress on any of these… except for one.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working my way through the barn, emptying the stalls of their manure. As of this morning, the score stands at 10 stalls done, 4 to go.
The plan for the weekend is to clean out the remaining 4 stalls, and then Matt has pledged to till the manure into the garden (if the snow melts).
I’d still love to tackle the other items on my to-do list, but I’m willing to call this it for the year… maybe.
I’ll see how much snow we get.
What’s your plan for the weekend? What’s the forecast where you are? Have you seen any snow yet this year? What outside work are you trying to squeeze in before winter starts?
