    In NH winter shuts down alot of activity. 5 degree days are just too brutal no matter how you put it to go out, frozen dirt too is a complete pain. Fall is nice, but winter things do change

    This is getting to the time of year I enjoy detecting the cliffs here in Elliott County. No snakes, folliage gone; can see so much more. Alot of rock shelters and old swimming holes in this neck of the woods. Good time to hunt when water is down as well.

    For another month or two, until the ground freezes, hunting is pretty good here on shorelines. With the leaves off the bushes and vegetation dead you can get to some spots that the summer hunters canít get to. I also do playgrounds more in the fall because it seems there are fewer hunters out during that season and school playground are being refilled.

    Do you have a work shop ? you sure sound like you'd enjoy one . projects done out in the shop with a fire in the stove, some nice music and you're preferred beverage within reach. and just do stuff , make something , fix something . I'm going to build a solar collector this winter to help heat my home . I also spend a good deal of time doing scrap metal art. Don't let winter rob you of 3 months every year. find something , hunting ? fishing?

    To everything there is a season.

    This time of year - harvest the last of the garden. Sharpen the broadheads for archery deer season. Till under the old plants and add some limestone and peat moss to the garden. Get ready for making sauerkraut. Harvest the horseradish and grind it up just before the ground freezes in November. Winterize the boat and store the kayaks in the barn. Maybe sneak in a few trips to the lake on the warmer days - good fishing in the fall.

    Hunt deer and grouse.

    Cut, split and stack firewood for next year.

    Homebrew a few batches of beer (easier in the winter because roasting and boiling the grain heats up the kitchen and you can set the wort outside to cool before pitching in the yeast).

    Snowshoe & cross-country ski.

    Tie up some flies for next spring & summer.

    Fletch up arrows if needed.

    Cast some lead balls for the muzzleloaders. Reload centerfire ammo for target shooting and hunting. Shoot targets or just plink.

    Then before you know it the ground is thawing and you can detect (and plant the next garden and start over).


    PS - if you are bored get yourself an Airedale Terrier. You can NEVER wear one out with fetch or just tromping in the woods or miles on a leash-walk along the road. They will always be up for, or up to, something to keep you on your toes. ;-)

    Silence is golden. With an Airedale it's suspicious.

    I also do a lot of what Charlie mentions except my garden gets no winter rest here in zone 7 . turnips and mustard are doing good , spinach , lettuce and radish was planted this week .I plant garlic at the end of November . What's not growing are the weeds and insect population. always something to be done living in the country.
