I plan on pushing the wheelbarrow up to the neighbor's to get the mulch from the felled trees today and tomorrow. No church tonight.....Fall break...so that will give me an extra day to work on the property. It just looks so barren.

I am tearing out my vegetable garden and next year it will be flowers. I had a groundhog burrow under the garden and next to my house and it was hard to get him out. However he destroyed my vegetables.

2 jobs to complete today...cleaning the mower so that I can have it taken in to the shop to be serviced for the year and to complete the trimming with the weed eater. It's not time yet to start on the leaves, They've not fallen...but have started. I rake/blow them up in long lines and begin the mulching. I don't like to rake this early because if it rains the pile gets wet and it's harder to dry them for the machine to mulch...but sister gets out there when I'm not around and 'helps' me....listening and believing is not our forte. LOL I told her that I wanted to make a mulch pile and use leaves in it so she carried 3 huge loads up to my supply area ...unmulched...not a pretty site. I'll have to move it. But...together we keep the place going and that's what it's all about.
Yesterday I was able to get all the planting done. The rest will wait until February. ...mostly early spring/summer bulbs. I also got the blackberries mulched and the peonies cut back. Sister raked the pond and I took all the loads to the fill in front. The dirt is still soft to walk on, but I expect it to solidify over the winter and next spring I'll add to it, but it will save our hill from erosion. Anything to keep it workable. If I have time today I'll dig dirt and rocks for the well...but it's not an emergency so it's last on the list. And then there's the walk to complete. I need a load of sand...it's always something.
Have a great day all and be blessed.

Keep Sparkin'!

Was able to get the dam trimmed and most of the public side of the pond. Now I'll just cut the briars and bushes out and it will be clear for the winter. I finished the mowing, worked on the well, raked the field, covered the fountains, dug out a drainage trench, moved some rotted logs, and just stayed busy all day. I'm taking the day off today and then going out again tomorrow. I still have to mulch the garden and lay new barrier and finish the brick walk as well as a dozen small jobs that are time consuming.Love gardening...but hate getting ready for winter...feels like I'm closing up a box of well loved treasures. Keep Sparkin' all!!

Sister went to stay with GS today...I'm just plain jealous. I was off work...but we are told that cold weather is pending and I had too much work to do on the property to go. The young man came back and worked 8 hours with me...I wore him out...don't think he'll come back any time soon...but we got so much done today. A tree fell by the pond and we were able to move it out of the way and clean up around it into the edge of the woods. We then went to the top of the hill and hit an area that has plagued me all summer with briars that have caught my clothes and hair every time I mowed up there. We cleaned it out and I was able to take the mower straight through without any problem. We took the briers, limbs, and small trees/vines off to the burn pile. On the way back down to the center garden...once the wheelbarrow was emptied, I stopped at the old mulch pile and dug out a load of dirt to carry to the well project. The boy was able to build the well wall up another 12-15 inches and really did a great job. I'll fill in the new level with dirt and mulch tomorrow and keep building. I left him with that project and went to the upper field to mow. I'm almost done with the last cutting and if the weather holds until Monday I'll have the trimming done and will be able to just mulch leaves for the rest of the season. We're in a dead heat push now....so just need to focus.
Work was what it usually is. Had a hostage situation at the sister clinic I used to work in. Man came in and held a triage nurse ( what I do) in a room and the police had to come, intercede, and although the nurse was released...we're all now on high alert. Lots of crazies out there.
But God is in control and I give it all to Him. Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!!

Keep Sparkin'!

Garden is finally being put to bed for the winter. Starting to pull out the plants. 1/2 way done. Raining today. Canning season is almost done. I only have to make applesauce. The sauerkraut was done on Tuesday. NICE flavor this year. Used Dutch Flat cabbage. Pantry has over 300 + jars of food. Appreciate is the most in Jan, Feb, March....
Got 6 bushels of potatoes. Taking some to the food pantry.
Now, maybe I will have more time to sew....

It is what it is! Accept those things you cannot change, but change those that you can!

Went out for several hours today. Worked on the well, carried gravel and filled in the walk base and tamped it down, trimmed bushes, harvested chestnuts, hoed the lily garden and did some weeding. Shopped this afternoon, am now sitting with GS and feel like it's been a really great day.

I plan to hit the garden to work on the pseudo-well tonight. I've collected stone and plan on building a wall around an old stump in the yard. I'll build a few inches and then fill in with dirt, build some more and fill in some more. I have old locust poles and will put one on either side of the circle and then when it's tall enough plant purple wave in the top and let it spill over. Another pole will be connecting the side poles like a bar and I'll hang a bucket from it. There are so many fossils in the rock that I hate putting them flat side down...I'd rather show off the shells and things in the stones. But ...I have to use concrete to build the structure if I do that and I don't want to have anything permanent. This is a garden in process and changes all the time. Can't wait to see what's next!

Time is not on my side right now. Sorting the stones for the well takes more time than assembling it. But it will be worth it. Love the sound of new beds. It's always exciting to see them come in. What will you plant?

Working on the well is a little project? Wow.

I need to get out in my flowers and dead head and spread some more mulch. Also have a couple of new beds I'm going to work on for next year.

I love working outside this time of year.

I had a nice harvest of cucumbers and tomatoes. The Swiss chard also did very well.
My garden gave me quite a good crop of non-pesticide vegetables. Within the next week or two, I will have to put it to bed, and star planning for next year.

News declares heavy storms coming in for the next day and 1/2....so we'll see. I have apples to peel and can look through catalogues for next springs plantings. I have decided to plant some fruit trees near the garden in the small field. The figs came in well this year but the plums were pitiful. I've pruned back some of the limbs and hope that next spring will be better...the chestnuts are strong too, but we can't get up in the grove to get them right now and in 2 days the wildlife can rip us off big time...LOL...don't mind..it encourages them to stay in the area. I'll just keep working on it!

Was in the yard about 9 hours yesterday. SIL came out and worked with me.We were able to finish the center garden site and move to several of the side sites. We cleaned out a yellow iris bed and replanted it. She and Bro are landscaping a new property and she'll have lots of heirloom plantings to take back to Texas. I can see light!

Peelerone...I need to take lessons from you!! Next year I hope to get a veg garden in. I went out for 2 hours last night and dug and cleaned...but the grass will need mowing by mon and I have company in for a week.
I've never heard of dehydrating tomatoes. The weather is off this year. Here in the Ohio valley we're in a cooling moment..then hot weather and storms will set in next week. We've almost had a drought. My plants will survive, but I get frustrated at all the brown. Be blessed.

Keep Sparkin'!

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers Philemon 1:3,4

Threat of frost in the night for the next couple. Then our Indian summer. Early this year.
Garden is starting to die off. I have canned over 200 jars and dehydrated alot of food.
I still have kraut fermenting, potatoes will have to be preserved. We can and freeze them.
Making end of the garden relish today. Dilly beans tomorrow. Tomatoes will be picked and dehydrated.
Lawn work is always there. I agree Tatters, not complaining but how do I keep up??? I am on my last 'canning vacation' and then I start with my full work schedule.
Boy, pooped thinking about it all...oh, wait---am I on Spark because I am procrastinating??? LOL

It is what it is! Accept those things you cannot change, but change those that you can!

Thank you Tatter and Graphics. There is a rental house across the street and the tenant is vacating. It has a small front yard with potential for a garden. I spoke with the Landlord about viewing it and he would like to rent it to me! If all goes well, my dream will soon become a reality! In anticipation, I purchased a book about gardening for disabled and seniors.

I understand how you feel, I would miss my garden so much if I didn't have it to putter around in. Do hope you might find some place soon.

Oh how I would like to have a garden. I miss digging in the dirt. I live in an apartment and have houseplants on my shady front porch. I am looking for a house to rent so I can grow herbs, veggies and dwarf fruit trees.

Worked in my yard in the morning and then in Honey's this afternoon. Didn't get as much done as I wanted, but I could see some progress. The deer came back this morning and I think I know why they seem to have no fear when I'm out. I work bending over from the hips while standing and with me bobbing up and down all over the area, I think they believe I'm grazing. The rabbit was really annoyed with me and kept hopping off and then coming back throughout the morning. We had a really dramatic storm last night and both Honey and my yard was full of limbs blown down from the wind. Got most of his picked up today but didn't touch mine. I'm glad I watered before the rain. They reported over an inch fell but when I dug up the middle garden to turn it over to plant there was nothing but dry ground to turn. Same at Honey's, we're just in a drought right now. I'm moving out several of his plants..they're I the way and I need to clear the yard. He told me to do what I wanted...so the next few weeks will be double duty between his place and mine. But it gives me joy.
Keep digging and keep Sparkin'!!

Keep Sparkin'!

Honey's home from the hosp and I hope to get more done in his yard when he rests this afternoon. Hate not touching my own garden...been away from it for a week...but we have all the time in the world...it's just day by day!
