One of the many things that people love about the warmer months of the spring and summer is having their own gardens and being able to produce fresh homegrown vegetables. Living here in New England, we have a shorter growing season than those who live in a warmer climate. All of you who believe your window of opportunity to grow your crops is just too short, follow the below tips to extend your season without having to move south.
No doubt, fall is a favorite season for many. Sweatshirts, fires and football—they are all sure signs that summer is fading away and cooler temperatures are driving in. But as the temps drop, we often find our heating costs increasing. There are ways we can fight the increased costs, and below we highlight tips to help keep more cash in your wallet.
If you are in the market to buy a new home, the Fall just might prove to be the right time to find the home you’ve been waiting for. While the majority of people hope to be completely moved into a new home by the fall, if you have the option to wait until the temperature start to drop, you might find that things work in your favor. As reported by the National Association of Realtors, you will find April, May, June and July are typically the busiest months for people to purchase new, or “new to them” houses. Families strive to be settled in their new location by the time the new school year begins, especially when moving to a new town.
Fall is often a busy season as teachers, children and parents find themselves getting back into their school routines. Swimsuits and flip-flops get pushed aside and hoodies and winter boots make their debut. As you prepare to enjoy the crisp air and bon fires, it is a good time to start your Fall home maintenance to make sure your house is ready for the falling temperatures.
You have gone through all the steps to purchase your new home, which can be a grueling process. From finding a home you love, to securing financing, to enduring inspections and negotiations, to surviving the closing… you have gone through this process pondering ways to make the home “yours”. Since it is unlikely you have purchased the perfect home, which needs no upgrades, improvements, or finishing touches, you have likely made a laundry list of tasks to tackle when you move in. But instead of jumping in and tearing things apart, take a break and wait to renovate.
