Field Notes. We left Sunday afternoon for a funeral in Wadena, Minnesota. We left fall, and entered winter. Many vegetables were under plastic or fiber, but not all. After two very cold nights we will see how they fared. We are racing to harvest and root cellar before consistent cold temperatures damage what remains in garden and field.
|Bed prep in garden|
Ken and Loyal continue to prepare garden and field for winter with additional plantings of spring crops and green manures. They also have some soil amendments to add.
The irrigation pond work was completed before this last rain, and we were all delighted to see it holding water! This was where we invested a chunk of our savings so we will have water during future dry periods.
|sage in garden|
Sage is a delicious herb best used in a way that seals it in - stuffing, biscuits, egg dishes, for example.
Thank you to all of who who attended the opening reception at artZ gallery last week. And thank you for your vegetable purchases. Everyone seemed to have a fun evening and the questions directed to Ken were great.
Happy Thanksgiving. We count you among our blessings. Thank you all for your support.
Next box December 12th.
