Broccoli this year hasn’t flowered, but the small leaves are tender enough to eat.
From leeks to lettuce, the garden is still active.
We protect newly planted garlic from marauding chickens.
This set of starters got a good drenching with compost tea. Throughout the winter, we water the greenhouse from the gambusia (mosquito-eating) fish tank. For now, row cover helps the ground stay moist in between waterings and in the cold of winter will keep the soil warm.
Garden gold: compost tea curing in the sun. It’s a mixture of compost, manure, and gambusia water. It passed the smell test.
Potluck this coming Saturday, October 15. Bring a dish to share and a recipe. Someday maybe we’ll create a cookbook. We’ll eat about 11:30 and have a short general membership meeting. Those of you who worked with us this spring and helped us have another successful harvest, please come visit. We need people to take home tomatoes!
