On a gorgeous fall weekend, we transformed the garden for the season.
Ella and Hannah feed corn stalks into the chipper so they can be added to the compost pile. Norma arrives with more stalks.
We’ve pulled out the row cover for the season. Peppers and zucchini need coverage to survive nights when the temperatures dip near freezing.
Lawrence and Albert mix the soil in the summer and winter squash boxes. We’ve harvested most of our squashes for the year.
After working hard, Alison stops to take home a food share.
We had planted numerous turnip seeds because they were old and we wanted to increase the chances some would grow. They all did! Thinning the plants yielded a 5-gallon bag of tender, delicious greens, which Cindy brought to the local community lunch at the UU where Cindy brings fresh food from the garden every week.
Cindy brought this tub with at least 7 lbs of pole beans and bush beans to the UU for the weekly community lunch. The beans will go into soups, stews, casseroles, and other dishes.
As the workday weekend ends, the rented chipper goes home.
