Because it has been such a slow slide into winter, I have been in denial that the frozen-ground, the-garden’s-truly-dead period comes along with the season. But it’s arrived here, and our first snow (normally dumped then melted) has stayed and stayed. Ugh. The dark days.
Can you find Chicken Patty? Some chickens are Rhodes scholars, some are just dumb. Patty’s in the smart camp because she managed to negotiate the 7′ high fence around the garden…and is harvesting worms from underneath the sheet mulch.
Everything has been put to bed, under covers……and as you can see, things are still bright and fresh in here. If you look closely you’ll see I have been successively taking the outside leaves of each plant for my customers’ and our own salads.
