Packing things up.

This is the time of year when we are face with our final outdoor projects of the year. As fall rolls in we have several things that need to be addressed outside before snow falls. One thing we have to do is to bring indoors all of our teak wood patio furniture and outdoor furniture. The garden is pretty much finished for the year which means we need to do some cultivation of the soil in order to prepare it for planting next year. I have several potted plants outside that will need to come inside for the winter and several new plants in the ground that will need to be protected. There is also garlic to be planted sometime before November. As glad as I am to see another gardening season come to an end, it is also sad to know that ground will soon be covered with snow. Being stuck inside all winter leaves me dreaming of warm spring days and getting my hands in the soil once again.
