Feeling the Nudge

I usually wait until after the first frost to clean up my flower beds.  This year I had been feeling a nudge to get it done.  I can't explain why.  I listened and have been busy cleaning things up outside.
I started by cutting back pernials, pulling out annuals, and weeding.  Once complete the front wasn't looking it's best, so I added $20 worth of mulch.  Amazing what a little bit of mulch does to improve an area.

Weeds were pulled from the driveway and the rotten timbers along one side were removed.  The timbers on the other side of drive need to be removed also.  That may be a project that waits until spring.

Over the weedend I worked on cleaning windows.  I used our handheld vacuum on the screens and then cleaned the windows.  The inside still needs cleaned, but that will wait for a day when I can't be outside.


There are a few left to do.  Garden knick nacks need to be cleaned and stored.  The back porch needs cleaned and things put away.  Along with a few odds and ends Megan has at the slide.

I feel pretty good about getting everything cleaned up in the next week.  Then I will help Chuck with any last minute projects he 'd like to finish before winter.

  1. My husband helps me with the Windows and moving furniture so I can do a fall cleanup. Don't like doing the Windows because we have trees and bugs but it has to be done.

  6. While it is a sound rule of thumb, a notable exception does exist for situations caused by share repurchases. satta king

  7. You can gain time by renewing your beds with this method: slice under the turf and turn it over. Cover it with wood chips and wait a few weeks. satta king
