Last week was perfect for working outside. I wasn’t needed much at the hospital, the weather was beautiful, and no family issues! I took advantage and did some fall gardening.
My on-site handy man made cages for two of the fig trees. I will fill the cages with leaves, straw and newspapers for winter protection. The third tree is in the greenhouse.
It was a productive week but there is still work to be done, mostly leaves to be raked and shredded. If all goes well the garden will be put to bed by the end of November. For me, December is the only month of the year that I do no gardening. In January the seed nursery starts the cycle and we’re off to another year!
