Productive weekend!

This weekend was cooler and I swear I could smell fall in the air. And, the leaves were blowing through the air! I have a love/hate relationship with that season. I love the cool and crisp air, apples and fall activities. But, knowing winter is on the way bums me out!

I started off by spending at least 6 hours pulling weeds, putting down newspaper and putting mulch on top. So much work, and I have 3 more sides, but it’s looking so much better!

Less weeds!!

I transplanted so many, like 60 strawberry plants into their new home. I probably have at least 60 more plants that needs a new home! 🙂

I harvested another pumpkin, and I love the shape of this one! This one has potential for being chosen as the carved pumpkin. I like having lots of extras because the chickens love pumpkins and they especially love them when it’s cold outside and it’s something different.

I found this praying mantis in the garden. It was a big one for sure! Don’t worry, it went right back to where it was captured!

S/he was huge!!

I took the last of the tomatoes and turned them into spaghetti sauce. This will taste so much better in winter instead of the store stuff!
