Today in the garden...
...unhooked the hoses from the house faucets and put them in the garage. Shouldn't freeze long enough to be a problem for the rain barrels which are still very full.
...snapped some photos of blooms which may be gone soon. We have a frost advisory posted for tonight and a hard freeze warning posted for Saturday night.
...used all the bath water on the hens and chicks Poured it wearing a coat, earmuffs and gloves. A front came through around noon today with a freaky sleet/snow/rain shower. I was at our local Oktoberfest celebration at the time. Brrrrr. Was there for work for 4 hours. Gave the garden a little time when I got home before retreating to the house and turning on the furnace for the first time this season to thaw out my toes!
