Work Days Nov. 6 to 12, 2011

As fall turns colder and plants begin to drop their leaves, our tasks at the garden will become more about prepping beds for next spring (when it is warm enough and not too wet), pruning bushes, building compost, clean up and maintenance.

This week we'll have two work days:

Wednesday, November 9 from 1 to 3 we will take care of the raspberries and prep a bed for spring planting.

Friday, November 11 from 1 to 3 we will plant the last of the garlic, weed the root bed, add manure to the compost pile, build a cloche (a sort of mini greenhouse over the garden bed), and start prepping a root bed for spring planting.

Come on by for any amount of time during the work days.  Every little bit of help makes a big difference!

Picture of the Week
Here are some flats of leafy greens planted by our 10th graders during their 6 week farming block back when the weather was warmer.  Most of these have been transplanted into the leaf bed by now and/or sold at the weekly market.  It's hard to believe that these little guys could have grown up and moved on in such a short amount of time!
