Autumn Activities

Autumn is the perfect time to engage your children in various exciting activities. Kids love to do innovative things by using their imagination and ideas. The activities are fun for the children, but they also help them become more creative.

You can introduce them to various gardening activities like pruning, composting, mulching, and collecting dried leaves. Children can easily accomplish all these tasks, and you can do them all in the autumn season when there is plenty of scopes.

Have fun with the whole family

Autumn or Fall is also when you have baskets in hand for picking ripe fruits from the fruit trees in your garden. Children also love picking fruits, and they love to devour fresh fruits in the garden as soon they pick them. If you have had a great harvest season, you can utilize excess quantities of fruits to make preserves and jams for the coming seasons. Some of the recipes made from fresh fruits have been passed down for generations, and you can also make your children learn them.

Art and crafts arouse a lot of interest in children. You can give them many such creative activities as making scarecrows in the garden, coloring pots and containers, making plant markers for the bulbs or seeds you have recently sown in flower beds, etc. You can also make decorative pieces or lanterns from dried pumpkins and gourds.

Another important activity that can serve educational purposes is to make a collage out of dried leaves. You can ask the kids to collect dried leaves or flowers and make collages. Leaf pressing is an exciting activity that helps the children to identify different types of leaves and flowers. Autumn is also the season when many birds are attracted to the garden to feed on seeds and spent flowers. That is the perfect time to educate children about different bird species. This way, they will feel closer to nature and enjoy the pleasures that it has to offer.

Black Raspberry - TN Nursery

Black Raspberry

The Black Raspberry plant has dark berries and distinctive foliage that provide a visually striking contrast to other plants, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the landscape. Black raspberries (Rubus occidentalis) offer a variety of benefits when integrated into landscaping projects. These versatile plants blend aesthetic appeal, ecological contributions, and practical uses in outdoor spaces. Black Raspberry Has White Foliage  The Black Raspberry plant is similar in color to blackberries. However, the fruits fall away when they ripen, and the leaflets often appear white. These plants are native to eastern North America and are arching shrubs that can grow to around three to seven feet tall before the canes start to arch downward. The Black Raspberry's Leaf Appearances They have alternate, compound leaves consisting of three to five leaflets. The leaflets can be lance-shaped or egg-shaped and extend to two to three inches. Each leaflet begins to taper toward the end. Side leaflets are narrower and smaller than the rest. All leaflets on the upper surface of the plant have a dark green hue. Upon close inspection, you'll notice that the leaflets along the upper surface are slightly hairy. The hair is more densely matted along the lower surface. A leaf stalk measures between 2 and 2.5 inches long. The twigs on them are smooth and flexible. They initially appear white during the first year of growth. However, they change colors with the season. During the warm summer months, the canes have a bluish-green hue. Once the winter arrives, they turn purple. When the temperatures are low, the canes may even turn yellow. Older canes appear more trunk-like and have a somewhat smooth bark. They are reddish purple with a white coating. The wood itself is white and soft. The flowers that grow from these plants show up from April to June. They grow in close clusters that consist of three to seven flowers. As for the petals, they are usually white and narrow. Raspberries can start to grow in late June and July. They are small and firm fruits with a strong aroma. Most raspberries have a globe shape alongside a flat base. Once fully grown, each raspberry is around 1/2-inch expansive. Black Raspberry Has Blue-Looking Berries  Black Raspberries are small blue-black berries with tiny seeds. They are native to North America. The fresh season is in the first few weeks of July. The full cane length is around 13 feet. Scientific name is Rubus occidentalis.
