Thursday, Oct. 6 from 8:30 to 10:30 we will weed the root crops, build compost, thin the carrots and beets, plant more radishes, spray fermented equisetum preparation, and plant vetch in some of the beds that will be resting over the winter.
Saturday, October 8, if anyone is an early bird I'll be at the garden from 6:45 to 8:45 in the morning weeding the flower and herb beds.
Come join me if you can. If you can't, feel free to come out to the garden and look around any time. I often come just to sit and rest in a peaceful place.
The garden is really looking wonderful now that we've had cooler weather and some rain and thanks to everyone's help. The children and not quite adults (high school students) are taking on most garden tasks with vigor and enthusiasm. Harvesting seems to be a favorite task for some while others love loading and dumping wheelbarrows full of whatever needs moving.
Here are a few younger siblings of our third graders hanging out in the shade next to some flats we had just planted.
And here is Christy, weeding the sorrel bed.
