In spite of the unusually warm autumn we’ve had, we know that winter will still be coming, so we’ve been spending time this month getting ready! There are a few more chores to do now that we have the farm, but it’s not too bad. There’s the usual garden clean-up, and this year the Dadz is working extra hard to prepare us a much larger vegetable garden area for next year.
One thing is for sure – when we’re working out in the yard we are never alone, and we even get help sometimes!
Other times, it’s simply supervision and inspection:
Most of the firewood for the winter is stacked in the barn, but since we’ve cleared a lot of trees this year, there are still some wood piles around the yard. Cricket will be looking forward to putting that to good use this winter!
We usually see at least some snow flurries here before the end of October, but I’m not sure how likely that will be this year. Samantha will continue to enjoy some outdoor time, and come back this week to see a bit more about her second big adventure lately.
Even though we’ll get outside a lot in the winter, we’re still going to need some indoor activities for those frigid days.
