Winter Prep

Ducks are gone.  They grew up enough that their wings became functional and before I could clip the wings all four ducks took off for parts unknown early one morning.  I’m bummed in some ways but not in others.  I would love to get some more next spring but it is kinda nice not having extra critters to take care of.  Although they sure did add some nice fertilizer and reduced the number of slugs I have.

We’ve finally had a couple of good frosts that have killed all but the hardiest plants in the garden.  The tomatoes are finally done.  Now if it would dry out for about a week then I could till things under and spread compost and lime.  My luck though it will snow and bury everything under a foot of snow.  Oh well.  I haven’t ever done anything before so I’m not sure why I should really start now.  It wouldn’t hurt to at least get some things cleaned up out there though.

About littlehawkyarns

I'm a gardener that is trying to provide good food for my family to enjoy. I have two children, two dogs, a husband, four chickens, and four cats. In addition gardening I enjoy handwork such as knitting, crochet, and sewing. I'm in the process of trying to learn tatting and embroidery as well. I am soon adding more critters to the collection since we just got property and I spin yarn.
