Preparing for the Cold Season Ahead

Now that the days are getting colder, and all the trees are dropping their leaves, my gardeners and outdoor grounds crew are busy with fall cleanup.

To stay organized during seasonal transitions, I create very detailed lists of all that needs to be done. Current projects include cleaning the garden beds, covering the air-conditioning pits and hoop house vents, bleeding and storing the outdoor hoses, blowing and collecting the many leaves, 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. And don’t forget, Daylight Saving Time ends tomorrow morning, November 5th, so set the clocks back one hour before going to bed tonight. Those living in participating states across the US will get an extra hour of sleep. Daylight Saving Time occurs in many states and territories except Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Island.
