slow weekend at home

We had such a nice weekend just hanging out at home. There was lots of work to be done, but it was so enjoyable because the sun was shining for the first time in several days!

The kids helped me and Tim "put our gardens to bed" by raking leaves and spreading them over the garden spaces. We covered those leafy beds with hay. Willow and Indigo picked the last of the purple flowers and dragged all of the dead morning glory vines and sunflower stalks to the fire.

Clover helped with putting the hens into our (weedy) vegetable garden. They had a great time running around pecking at all of the weeds and bugs. Nova chased them for about an hour before deciding that it might be easier to just watch from the fence.

We still have lots to do, but now we are ahead of our garden chores instead of behind! Hurray!
