Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

October: our most pleasant month.

Richmond, TX

October is usually when we can expect cooler, less humid weather, and we have had a few really nice days so far. We have also had 90 degrees and humidity in between! I am still clipping weeds off of a few pastures or parts of pastures. I want to leave as much grass as possible for the cold winter they are predicting. As soon as we get some rain, I plan to start replacing fence posts on the east side of the south paddock - only about 750' of fence, I think. The rest of that paddock has been refenced recently. The smaller paddock east of the barn also needs new wire on the north fence - and so it goes... We have had this farm long enough that almost everything is coming due for replacement - for the second time in some cases.

I also want a run-in shed built in that paddock as we have a couple of additional pensioners "housed" there. That I will hire done, however.

What is everyone else up to?
