Getting ready for winter
Well we have been busy doing a bunch of semi-uninteresting fall tasks. Now that the garden has done i've had a bit of time to reflect on the successes and the failures. probably won't grow peanuts again (see the one lonely peanut above), broccoli and basil did well, bumper crop of tomatoes once we moved them to the side of the house and also a lot of success with the peppers. Below are the teeny, tiny onions we reaped from the garden. so wee.
This past weekend i planted over 250 bulbs. Hopefully the squirrels won't get to all over them.
By far the biggest project we have been working on is the pergola and staining the fence. The pergola still has some finishing touches needed so hopefully we can finish that up before winter. We are planning on growing grapes and/or hops next year on the pergola. As for the fence, we didn't really want the fence to go gray just yet so we spent many days staining it. In 6 years when it is supposed to be redone, we are just going to leave it.
One nice thing about the staining is that we did the deck going up to the backdoor so now it all matches.
