Garden Thursday

Hello from the garden. Fall is really here, we did have a freeze which made mum happy. That means the mulberry tree will start dropping its leaves. Some years we have had leaves on the tree until Thanksgiving!

So with many leaves down mum worked on Sunday to get the worst of it off the grass. She got out the blower and the tarp to move the leaves to the street. See our pile so far? Lots more maple leaves to come down.

Mum has also started the garden clean up. You can see she has the back of the motor monster filled with branches and stuff. This was from yesterday, she also did loads on Monday and Tuesday. Says she can take her time. She cuts down enuf for a full load, takes it to the compost spot, that is it for the day. She likes not having to work like a crazy person to get it done.

So you can see all of the stuff cut down, she needs to blow the leaves out, but that will come later since there are so many leaves to come down yet.

This is her problem spot. Said there were too many weeds and such. So she will need to work harder on this spot next year.


  1. Your mum has already done a lot of work and it looks like she's got a lot more ahead of her Ducky. You'd better keep her warm once she comes inside for a rest.

  2. We inherited the house, with all of it's gardens, and have barely added more. Just a few native Michigan plants, which we hope will attract more bees and butterflies. Gardens can be a lot of work!

  3. Glad the leaves started to drop early this year for your mom. She always has next spring to work harder on that one section of weeds. Hope she is with you now inside enjoying a relaxing cuddle time together. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.
