PUT FALLING LEAVES TO WORK.
Falling temperatures. Falling leaves. Bypass the lawn service that vacuums them up, and add them to your compost pile, along with any fallen twigs. Dried leaves are a good source of carbon (which your compost pile needs lots of) and crucial to helping your pile breathe.

KITCHENS we love
Sponsored by WORTH PROPERTIES LLC
“We inherited a 1970’s kitchen in our 1923 home. We wanted to restore it to its original design. We realized we had a masonry chimney with a thimble (plastered shut) so we looked for a stove. We purchased a 1920’s gas/ wood/coal stove that was shipped from Massachusetts and came completely disassembled with no instructions! It’s our main stove and the focal point of our kitchen. We love it and use it every day. We also used the original cabinetry (we found in the attic), restored the pantry that had been removed, removed layers of flooring, and refinished the original oak floors. We even removed the refrigerator and placed it on the back porch! It’s our favorite room, and we love the quaintness. Every time we have a party, everyone ends up in the kitchen!”

WHEN IS WHISKEY, BOURBON?
Contrary to popular belief, bourbon doesn’t have to be made in Kentucky —just the United States. And according to Rob Samuels, COO of Maker’s Mark in Kentucky, here are 4 other designations that make bourbon, bourbon:
It must be aged in a charred oak barrel.
The “mash” must be at least 51% corn.
Nothing can be added but water, no colorings, no flavorings.
It must be at least 80 proof when bottled.
