We came home from taking our last load of humanitarian aid for Zimbabwe late this afternoon and found the kids hard at work here, hauling load after load of leaves from our yard across the street into Farmer Ron’s fields.
Fall is a restful time of year, until the last days before snow or rain comes. There is a lot of work to do to finish winterizing all of our yards. I’m not sure how we’d manage without the fields next door. I think we spread more than a dozen tarps full of leaves between the rows, a great mulch for the orchards there. Farmer Ron was always so pleased to receive our leaves. I hope he is smiling down on us now.
