Completing Late-Summer Chores at the Farm

We're in the last few days of summer, and this fall, I am hosting several very important events at my Bedford, New York home, so it's "all hands on deck" to get the farm ready.

I am traveling for work quite a bit this season, so before each trip, I create very detailed lists of all that needs to be done while I'm away. Supporting a working farm is a huge responsibility and a tremendous amount of work. In order for it to thrive, animals and gardens need constant tender loving care. The outdoor grounds crew has many projects including - pruning and trimming the trees and shrubs, weeding all the beds, planting new specimens and the next crop of vegetables, and most importantly, watering - we've had very little rain these last few weeks.

What are some of your late-summer chores? Let me know in the comments below. Enjoy these photos…
