These days are not quite Fall but not Summer either. The past few days have been warm. Good time to finish up projects.
Those are the Rake Wheels that used to be on the arbor…the arbor was rotting and we were afraid it would come down on someone someday. Jen, Andy and the boys made quick work of getting it down and hauled away.
This is what the arbor used to look like. The roses never liked growing through those wheel spokes anyway. I think I might be able to find some kind of landscape timber for them to grow onto…maybe. That is a next year project.
For now the rake wheels are here against the grain bin. Out of the way for now.
We finished painting the garage entry doors and trim…ran out of paint once…had to run to town and get more mixed up. Good thing Ace Hardware keeps records of our paint colors.
We also finished cleaning, washing and waxing the vehicles. That was a big job. Blankets and winter survival cans are in each vehicle.
I got out the scarecrow.
As you can see the Oak leaves just turn brown and fall off. I mulched/mowed one day this week. It is unreal that the grass is still actively growing. I will mow/mulch every few days now to try to keep ahead of the leaves. Eventually I will have to get out the rake and the leaf blower…but not just yet.
