Gardens, craft fairs, and general holiday mayhem

It’s that time of year again when there seems to be more to do than time to do it in. My last craft fair of the year (that I know of currently) is this coming Saturday, my garden beds are a mess, and Thanksgiving is a mere 9 days away. Where to start? First up we have heavy rain coming in overnight as well as Friday and because this craft fair is at work, I try to bring my stuff in over a couple of days and leave it in my workroom. That makes Saturday  morning easier and I don’t clog up the parking lot loading and unloading. Now, with this forecast, I’ll be packing the car with the first load this afternoon instead of digging out the other two trees from the scary garden.




The scary garden, I noticed yesterday, had 4 trees growing in it. It started out as the horseradish, raspberry, milkweed butterfly garden, but apparently I’ve neglected it long enough that the trees are 4′ tall. I dug two out yesterday, but what a pain! I also had 6′ goldenrod growing in it. I should have taken pictures of that! It was very pretty if a bit overwhelming. This is to be my garlic, parsnip, horseradish, raspberry, and milkweed garden. We shall see how that goes.

Then we have the bed socks…..I started them 2 weeks ago, they are made with worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles, but I’ve just about finished the heel and they are being picked up on Saturday.


So,  how do you sort out your “free” time and choose which chores get done when? I can’t be the only one who could use a few more hours in their day….although I suspect that those would fill right up with the other things I want to do.
