We will be raking soon so I thought this infographic might be of interest. Enjoy!
Well it appears that not only is summer over but so is fall.
Ok so autumn isn’t over for a few weeks but it sure does feel like it. I don’t have any wintry schoolhouse shots yet but the ones from this fall are a reminder that winter is on its way.
Well it is officially autumn.
After a recent trip to Sudbury I noticed the leaves were starting to turn. A favorite time of year! So here is an infographic I found that talks a little bit about the leaves and their lovely fall colours.
Well I guess I can’t put it off any longer. It is time to start raking the leaves.
Actually that isn’t true. I can totally put it off and wait until spring. Or I can never do it at all and then just mulch them when I cut the grass for the first time in 2014. It’s all been done before.
But alas I’ve seen the light and I want to rake this fall. With as many trees as we have it is a tedious and arduous process but I need the exercise and its a good thing to do.
I actually found some helpful tips for raking and fall yard work in Organic Gardening recently.
I don’t think my mower can handle the workload considering the number of leaves we get here but I will try to work them in where I can. I guess we all now know what I will be doing the next few weekends I am up!
Fall is here and I haven’t done an infographic in a wee while so here goes.
While this is based on American information, I suspect it can be reflective of Canadian statistics as well. At least in terms of dopey people overdoing it. Raking is good exercise but it also gives you blisters and a back ache if you aren’t prepared. But a beer while raking often helps!
As for the trees info, well that is just interesting. Enjoy!
Actually doing yard work.
After all of these months dreaming about getting outside and digging into some real work I forgot how tough it can actually be.
I started out ok, donning my new and very cool wellies, gloves and spring jacket. But by the end I was boots up on the couch, too tired to even crack a bevy.
Oh and I only got about 1/4 done at best. Needless to say I’ll be back soon to get another tiny corner complete. I guess I’ve got more work to do.
