Winterizing To Dos

22 Oct

It finally stopped raining and the wind has stopped howling. I was able to get on the roof and clean out the eaves. They had a netting over them but there was a lot of smelly, decomposing sludge in them. The screening will have to be replaced next year. At least they are now clear and can drain.

Laid bags of leaves over the line from the well just to make sure that there are no underground problems in that area. Put a bucket over the well head itself to protect it from meandering deer and to provide a minimal climate control which will be important come the freeze and thaw cycle next spring. Water in its many forms seems to be a consistent theme in my life, especially during these colder seasons.

More small herds of deer are crossing the garden more frequently. Deer scat everywhere. Who needs fertilizer?

No pics this post unless you want to see pics of bags of leaves and deer poop pellets.
