Autumn "To Do" List
Topic: Home Environment

It's Autumn and that means it's time to change our home environment and coordinate with the season. It's also time to harvest our gardens and enjoy the next several weeks between harvest time and the next seasonal holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

 Make a pot of chili--this "chili mac" is a variation of Cincinnati chili and has a topping of Greek yogurt for extra probiotic nutrition!

Next, bring in those pumpkins and winter squash, you might even find a really cute baby pumpkin, like I did!


 

Now, dig up a few herbs and re-pot as houseplants for the winter.I'll be taking some cuttings of this rosemary for roast chicken Tuscan beef during the winter!

So, let's conclude the day of Autumn "to dos" by re-decorating our homes with flowers and plantings that can tolerate the cold temperatures. 

No time?--then just place potted mums in the birdbath and make a statement. 

 

And re-decorate that front door with a new fall wreath. That's an easy switch!
