Coming Along

October 27 2009

A week of sun and temperatures fit for shorts gave our turnips and carrots and lettuces a much-needed boost. Even the kale we thought we’d lost to frost came back nicely and though it isn’t putting up much new growth it’s still withstanding our greedy harvests once or twice a week. We planted two varieties of garlic this week—it’ll lie dormant most of the winter and shoot up as soon as the ground warms in spring, giving us scapes to start with and bulbs by summer.


Low tunnels peeled back for sun.

A lot of what’s growing now is going to end up on the plates of people who come to the benefit dinner we’re hosting for the Automotive High School on November 2nd. Come if you can!
