Celtic Tree Month of Vine

Cloudy and cool

There are rumors we might get our first frost this weekend. Some of the plants, such as the tomatoes, will have to come in at night. We still don’t have our new furnace (which was supposed to be installed by last Thanksgiving), so I’m getting in firewood for the fireplace, just in case, either today or tomorrow.

The cats have grown in fluffy coats. Tessa looks like a small black bear with all that fur. I think it will be a cold winter.

It’s very dry, so the yard hasn’t had a chance to do much. I’m behind in cutting things back (big surprise). I should do that this weekend. We’re getting one more mow this week, and then maybe one more in October, if necessary, and then we’re done for the season.

Then, it will be all about raking leaves – and raking the neighbors’ leaves that wind up here when they leaf blow. I am the only person in the neighborhood who actually bags them and takes them to the dump.

I should think about fall crops, but, honestly, I think the winter’s going to come in too hard and too fast for them.

I’m already thinking ahead to next spring, and how I have to set up tables inside so I can start enough plants inside early.

Autumn is my favorite season, in spite of the waning light, but there’s a lot of work involved. I want to make sure I get it done this year, so it’s not all a big mess in the spring.

How’s your garden doing? When do you plan to put it to bed for the season?
