Outdoor Autumn Chores at My Farm

Now that the days are getting colder, and all the trees are dropping their leaves, my outdoor grounds crew is busy with fall cleanup. I am hosting several gatherings at my home this season, so it is “all hands on deck" to get the farm in tip-top shape.

To stay organized during seasonal transitions, I create very detailed lists of all that needs to be done. This week’s projects include pruning the boxwood, blowing and collecting the many leaves, covering all the ornamental urns with burlap, plantings spring-blooming bulbs and so much more. So far, this autumn has been quite mild here in the Northeast. The weather has allowed us ample time to ready the farm for the cold season ahead.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
