Fall Chores Around the Farm

What autumn chores are you doing this weekend? Now that the days are getting colder and all the trees are dropping their leaves, my outdoor grounds crew is busy with fall cleanup.

To stay organized during seasonal transitions, I create very detailed lists of all that needs to be done around my Bedford, New York farm. Over the last few weeks, my team has been working hard blowing leaves, cleaning equipment, covering air-conditioner pits, bleeding and storing hoses, winterizing the greenhouses, and installing heaters in all the coops. Our annual fall burlap project has also begun - that's when all the outdoor urns and precious boxwood shrubs and hedges are covered with protective burlap. So far, the weather has cooperated and allowed us lots of time to ready the property for the cold season ahead.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
