The growing season is winding down for the season while we are ramping up to prepare beds for the spring. The tomatoes are finished for the year but there are still beans, peppers, okra, carrots, radishes, and basil to be picked. The wildflowers in the first row are at their peak and create a nice entrance to the garden.
Come out on Saturday from 9-11 AM and take a look at what we have. Then pick some produce or pick up a pitchfork and spread some woodchips. There is still much to be done and the sweet potatoes won’t be ready to be dug until the end of the month or later.
