It's getting on in October and while I'm immensely enjoying the colors I am trying to stay on top of my "To Do List". Some of the things on that list include: finish planting the garlic, dig up the rest of the potatoes (clean them and store them), get a trailer load of manure to put onto all the gardens, pick the rest of the apples (freeze, make applesauce, juice and AC vinegar ), harvest the herbs (dry them or freeze them in olive oil), dig up the gladiola bulbs (store them for next year), harvest any remaining dandelion root (dry), mulch strawberry plants, pick any remaining elderberry still lingering on the trees (freeze), pick enough crab-apples (jelly), watch the pears (can and jelly), plan next years garden (crop rotation)...
What's on your to do list?
