Farewell, Garden!

Last week, we harvested more fall vegetables.  As many as we could.  It's been a mild fall, low temps only in the 20s up until now.  This means we've been able to contine the harvest our frost-hardy vegetables.  Veggies like lettuce, kale, greens, green onions, turnips, rutabaga, and carrots.

This is the end, though.  Temperatures yesterday dropped down into the teens and we're supposed to reach a low of 4 degrees farenheit in a few days time (along with an approaching blizzard! Hello, Winter!).

So I say farewell to the garden, tucked in with a blanket of snow.  I'll see you again in March!

  1. Hi! I came here after reading your comment on the post about your plans for next year. I like your blog, and enjoyed reading the newspaper article about your Thanksgiving meal. I choose what was grown locally when I can, but don't seek it out as much in the winter. I do avoid food grown outside of the U.S.

    It sounds like you are a regular at Farmers' Markets like I am, even though we both also garden. I have a suggestion for your efforts at having a booth. I don't know if you already knew what you wanted to sell, but I think it would be a good idea to choose a few items that not many others have, and not try to grow a large variety of things that are already available.

    I am still eating greens and kale from my garden, which is now covered with snow, too. It's the latest I've ever had salads from the garden here in Nebraska.
