Yes, for bonafide real estate customers I will definitely work on the weekends. However, if I'm not booked by Friday morning then I really look forward to the weekends.
This weekend started with a little tomato harvest. These are tiny little cherry tomatoes and we still have a number of green ones on the vine but I fear the yield will be limited since we are headed into fall.
In just a few minutes, I'll head out to the raised beds armed with my therm-a-rest kneeling pad, a dish to put weeds in, a small spade to dig up the spent squash and my camera.
Some gardeners just elect to leave all the dead plants in the garden and then they'll turn that debris into the dirt in the spring. That's up to them though. I don't want to take a chance that there might be some blight or non-beneficial insect activity brewing in the dirt over winter. Besides, it is dreary to look at the decaying plants sitting in the raised beds.
I'm already looking forward to seeing how the snow looks in the garden with the yard art left up. We have a very cool tower that we let the beans vine up on and several pretty trellises as well as other arty pieces. They'll photograph much better without the corpses of veggies past flapping in the breeze.
Today however, it is a gorgeous 62 degrees outside this morning with a fine breeze and a sunny sky. I would not have begrudged working real estate this weekend but I can't hide that I'm pretty happy to be taking a break after a really long week of working it pretty hard.
No matter what the weekend plans are for you today, tomorrow and Labor Day...make the most of the time. I know I will!
