La Maison Rustique - October

From: L'agriculture et maison rustique, Charles Estienne (Rouen, 1658).

The works that the laborer should do for each month of the year.

(Chapter 10)



In October there will be wines, and putting them in casks.

Withdraw the orange, lemon, and citron trees to someplace covered, for the danger of the upcoming coldness.

There will be honey and its wax, and squash the old bees.
