Another month gone by and the winter season is nearly here. Time for those of us who haven't already cut our winter's firewood to do so. With thoughts of staying warm by the fire, it is easy to forget that spring will be here soon. Fences need built/mended, beehives built, pastures mowed and more orchard space cleared, along with about a million other things. We mustn't forget the busy winter holidays either.

It is also time to get serious about preparing the garden for the springtime. Things like planting cover crops, (rye is a good one to keep down the nematodes), building compost piles, cold frames and, of course, making seed lists. Seed and nursery catalogs are an absolute must for fireside reading.

For today, however, lets just enjoy the beautiful fall day. As for tonight, watch out for the ghouls and goblins.

Have a safe and happy Halloween !!!!!!
