Fall

And so begins another season of pumpkin spice hell. You know what I saw the last time I was in the grocery store? Pumpkin spice flavored pudding. What the hell will they add that shit to next?

The weekend forecast shows temps in the 70s and 80s, so I spent time this morning prepping some of last seasons garlic to plant next seasons crop.

According to the local weather channel we have a few more days of warm temps before they settle into the 60s mid-week next week. Then we officially begin the game called “how long can we wait before turning the heat on.” I usually cave first, mostly because I grow tired of listening to Mr. K whine about how cold he is while sitting around in a short sleeved Tee-shirt and no socks.

Summer may be over, but there’s still much to be done. The chicken coop needs to be raked out, the garden tools oiled, the parsnips and garlic need mulch and the last of the carrots need to be pulled. There are fruit trees to trim and seeds to order before planting begins again. I’ve already laid out the 2018 garden in my head, and in just a few short months we’ll start the seedlings indoors.

In the meantime I’m going to enjoy the frosty mornings and falling leaves that will all too soon be replaced with falling snow.
