Fall Composting

This is the time of year when I do one final clean up before the weather starts to cool off. I clean the chicken coop, rake all the animal areas and any leaves that fell (not many here in Florida) and put everything into the compost pile.

This will probably be the last cleaning of the coop for a couple months. Unless it turns out to be a warm Fall. I leave the coop alone to create heat that helps keep the chicken warm during what few cold weeks we have.  More on “Winterizing Your Coop Florida Style” later.

For more on leaf composting and to see what a pile of leaves looks like, check out this post by City Girl Farming

Fall Garland

CWLeafBannerBanner

A cute Fall garland of colorful leaves that match the Falling Leaves Curtain here.

You’ll need:

Construction paper- green, brown, red, yellow and orange.

Leaf stencils (or draw free hand) can be various shapes and sizes. I think one shape and size looked good too.

Pencil. brown  yarn, scissors, tape

What to do:CWLeafBanner

Trace or draw leaves and on construction paper.

Cut out shapes. Fold paper to cut 6 at once.

Cut a piece of yard as long as want your garland to be.

Draw veins on your leaves.

Tape leaves together.

Attach leaves to yarn. I find taping is easiest

Hang over windows or doorways by pinning or taping.

Options:

Use scrapbooking paper with patterns instead of construction paper.

Add glitter to leaves.

Have Fun!
