Making Ready

Fall weather is here.  It is cold and blustery.  With a frost advisory tonight, what is left of my garden is covered.  I love this time of year!

Our fall preparations have begun.  While there is plenty more to do, we’re on the right track.  A few of these things are done…and others have to wait a few weeks until winter is closer.

  • Caulk around windows and doors
  • Make sure there are enough window kits to put plastic up when the weather turns cold
  • Change furnace filter and have a couple back up filters ready
  • Make some draft stoppers for the three doors
  • Replace door sweeps on two doors
  • Weatherstrip around door on side of garage
  • Put away summer toys and outdoor furniture
  • Rake
  • Turn compost
  • Clean up gardens
  • Wash outside windows
  • Sweep down entry and deck
  • Decide on winter decorations for outside, if any
