Week # 18!

It was a beautiful fall day. We dug some potatoes, cut out some celery, picked some tomatoes, gathered a few butternut squash among other things. A couple of young men came and pulled out the outside tomato plants, their stakes and cages, the mulch put that stuff away for the season. Yesterday Joelle spread winter rye seed where the onions had been, we hope that the rye takes off quick and is thick to choke out the thistle. The thistles are a problem in the two gardens that were cow pastures in previous years. She also broadcast buckwheat seed in one of the smaller gardens. We hope these cover crops can be turned under as a green manure later this fall.
