The outdoor prep for the coming storm was minimal.
Most of the garden clean up has been completed. Leaf drop has been minimal, the gutters did not need cleaning. The pool has already been closed and outdoor furniture and ornaments put away.
I did pick as many 'Trail of Tears' beans as I could. About half the pods had started to shrink and turn leathery. I'll let these dry indoors. I'm hoping that the temps stay warm enough to ripen the rest. I picked a few dry marigold flower heads for seed and brought in the last green tomato.
Now all I have to do is wait.
