The Garden at 485 Elm
People growing together:
a collaborative community garden in Montpelier, Vermont

The winter garden arrived this morning.

Here once lay winter squash and herbs.
Kale is still happening, and Brussels sprouts are only getting better. Before last night’s hard frost, the first of the season, gardeners gleaned the chard (formerly between the two kale rows in the foreground) and donated it to Community Harvest of Central Vermont.
This is the time of year when the solar panels get tipped to a more vertical position so they’ll catch what little sun will traverse our southern sky this winter. Notice the attractive blue and yellow dreamcatchers hanging from the bottom of the panels, along with fading pink surveyor’s tape. That’s so no one hits their head.
