Homesteading fall tasks

This is my favourite season, and a busy one here at the homestead.

Last week's projects included:
- seed collecting and drying (coriander, calendula, lettuce varieties, tomato varieties, beans)
- garlic harvest and drying
- herb harvest for fall herb shares (ready for local members in a few weeks)
- building a better herb drying rack in our kitchen for easy access
- more canning and preserving of fruits for winter (Niagara pears, peaches, plums)
- planting fall crops
- adding compost to the garden beds
- regular bread baking
- cleaning chicken coop :)
