We had several wonderful weather days last week. I did get out and rake leaves, and finish a few other minor chores. I was able to make two quarts of applesauce with my friend Dylan. It was the first time he canned so it was a learning experience.
Looking at the weather models Sandy will pass fairly close to us. How strong she will be when she visits Upstate New York?
I cleaned out the gutters and moved the outside furniture into the shed. Today was filled with errands and attempting to repair a neighbor’s generator. I was not able to get it started. I’ll try again in the morning, and then take it to a professional if they can work on it before the storm comes through. I really do not want to leave them with out a power source.
My apologies for the non-farm post. I will be back next week with plants and food.
Enjoy this season, learn from last season, and look forward to next season.
