We're in a bit of a holding pattern. Wine is aging, the garden is having a short rest before the winter planting, and the bees are abuzz. Last Saturday a group of us went up to hike Sibley Park to celebrate the last weekend of Summer. It was amazing to see the views - last trip it was so fogged in!

Compost tea, worm castings, a sturdy shovel, hand spade, hand rake, and good clippers.
Getting the garden cleaned up from summer and ready for fall.
All of the plants were fed compost tea. The vegetable garden soil was turned with fresh worm castings. Everything was left to rest and combine before planting.
We picked up seeds at OSH for the fall garden, going by the advice of a fall and winter garden article sent out by Park Seed.
A full day of beehive inspection and garden work called for some cool drinks!
It's tiring work!
