Ground frost has greeted us every morning this past week. For the moment we're enjoying our Fall beets, swiss chard, mixed greens, and carrots. But the first hard freeze will blacken all but the most hardy greens. Amazingly, brussels sprouts are ahead of schedule - there are several that we could pick even now. Cabbage heads are the size of many grocery-store grown varieties. It's time to take a break now that garlic is planted; the garden will remain essentially untouched until next February when we prepare the Spring garden for spinach. We've come full circle, and thank you so much for sharing this garden year with us!

Organic, or not? We try to raise vegetables organically, using compost and manure. The addition of chickens to our hobby farm means plenty of organic nitrogen to compost!
