Friday Fall Fotos (Fall?): Apple Pie Dreams and New Toys
Okay, okay- I know it's only the first of August so I might be rushing the season a little....
but I have to admit, I am really looking forward to Fall this year, even more than usual.
Fall just happens to be my favorite time of year; I love the crisp air and the amazing blue skies and the chilly mornings- but most of all I love Fall decorations.
In fact, I've got my boxes of decorations ready...
but I guess I'll try to put it out of my mind and hold off at least until September..... *sigh*
We all have dreams, I guess... things we want to do (or at least try)
and no matter how far-fetched, we can't seem to quit thinking about it.
I have a dream I've kept secret for a while now...
Oh, Hubby knows, because I only mention it like 30 or 40 times a week, but....
I've kept it to myself until now.
I dream of having an orchard.
As in a real, thriving apple orchard.
I've been doing lots of homework- finding information on the Internet about which trees grow best in our climate and where and when to plant... and happily, from everything I've read, we have not only an ideal place, but we also have the perfect fertilizer- sheep manure.
LOTS of sheep manure.
Plenty for each tree and then some.
And since Fall is the best time to plant trees....
-Oh my, I said Fall again, didn't I? -
Hubby got a new toy to help with the planting- a new auger to go behind his little tractor.
This will drill the holes for the trees to go in and make planting a snap.
Now I just have to decide how many trees I want.
I would have a hundred if I could, but realistically, I'll probably start out with 10.
And the best thing about it-
it will give our little bees plenty of work to do when the trees start blooming!
It's a win-win!
Speaking of new toys, you may remember Lily's car from a few months ago-
Well, Hubby and Lily had a little wreck a few weeks ago.
Everyone was okay, just a few scrapes-
but sadly, Lily's car was totalled.
The frame was bent so badly Hubby couldn't straighten it out and the wheels wobbled when it rolled. Come to find out, Lily had slightly exceeded the weight limit for her little car by about 10 pounds (just what every girl wants to hear),
so we started looking for a new car for her with a bigger load capacity.
We found just the thing on Ebay- it's made lower to the ground and wider than her other one
and it's called..... get this-
the "Tail Wagon"! :)
It's been a little too hot lately to even think about riding bicycles, but now we are ready to do lots of riding this Fall. (Oh dear, I did it again...)
I think I need to go put up my scarecrow wreath or something.....
Happy Friday, everyone!
