October Family Fun~

Album 11-22-2009 023

I can hardly believe that it is all ready October!  We are finally starting to feel like we are changing into the season of autumn here in the deep south.  Our family loves the season of fall ~ the cooler temperatures, the falling leaves, the warm colors…we pretty much love it all. 

We will be having some family fun this month.  Here are some of our autumn plans for our little white house.

{in the garden & yard}

  • add some fall color with mums to the flower beds and front porch (and possibly kale or ornamental cabbage…new one for me)
  • plant some more dark leafy greens, swiss chard, and root crops in the vegetable garden
  • drain, clean, and store the pool
  • rake leaves as they fall {and be sure to play in them too!}
  • prepare unused portion of garden to rest until spring planting
  • clean bird feeders and fill with seed
