Sleep Tight

We took advantage of the mild (above freezing) weather to spread a blanket of leaves over the garden. The leaves are part of our organic strategy to improve the soil and get the garden ready for next year.

We picked the last of the amazing indestructible kale (it's been below freezing for a week and the kale is still growing strong! above ground!) and the rest of the carrots, about ten pounds.

That's our last harvest for this year. We'll begin delivering grocery fruit and vegetables to Lewis House and Mt Calvary over the winter.

We're going to miss being out there - but spring will be here before we know it.

Good night, garden.
