September 4th

The season is winding down, yet the harvest continues to be abundant and varied.  In preparation for Winter, we are preparing beds, many of which have provided two or more crops.  The beds are being reestablished, spread with manure, and seeded with oats, which will provide protection in the winter months by retaining moisture and deterring weeds.
