September a month to:


September is a great time of year to:

  • Harvest your garden and prepare your garden bed for winter
  • If you did not have a garden this year, or need to supplement it like I do, visit a farm that will let you pick fresh vegetables right out of the field.
  • In your house and closet: go through your summer clothes and bedding and exchange it for fall/ winter clothes and bedding. I took off my summer bedspread and exchanged it for my warm, cozy winter one just this past week.
  • Inspect your bird feeders. Are they still in good enough shape to take on ourfurry flying friendsand their winter appetite? If not, consider repairing or replacing it.
  • Stock up onbath oilfor those long soaks in the tub you know you are going to want to take when the weather starts to get colder
