The season ends…for this year!

 

All ages have been busy in the garden this fall– harvesting and bagging the produce to take into the Food Bank…

 

Planting the garlic, harvesting the vermicastings from the in-ground worm bins…

 

Pulling the dried out scarlet runner beans off the fence and shelling them (yum, great in soups!)

And sowing all the cover crops to put the garden to bed for the winter!

The garden and the volunteers are having a winter break, and we wish you a good winter rest, too! Work parties officially begin again in March, 2012, but we’ll be out there Wednesdays starting in mid-January to turn over the cover crops.
