BBBRRRRRR!!!!! It’s getting cold… FAST! It’s not even mid-November and there is a freeze warning for tomorrow night!!! Already??? I’m so not prepared!
Every spring, I envision myself doing all the right things, planting at all the right times, watering and setting up a fantastic watering system, amending the soil, adding shade here and adding trellises there, even implementing a row cover system (such as this:) . However, time has once again gotten away from me and I am completely unprepared!!! So, tonight I’ll be stripping any remaining plants (mostly pepper) of their fruits and attempting to prepare themfor storage so we can use them instead of waste them. I’ll be helping to move some hay into the animal pens and making sure they have fresh food and water (where it won’t freeze). I’ll be bringing in my other outside plants and praying and hoping they survive inside for a few months. I’ll be attempting to get the water hoses drained and put away to prevent them from bursting if they froze. I’ll be making the dog house as warm as possible. I’ll be running around like a mad woman trying to make sure everything is prepped and winterized, and trying to get it all done before tomorrow when it turns cold.
I’m sure I’ll forget something!
Until next time, happy farming!
