autumn cover crop progress
the winter rye parker planted a week ago ( top two photos )is up and running so another bed is on the way to being situated for winter...on the other end of the row of beds a mix of alfalfa, winter rye, and new zealand white clover is coming in in what was the three sisters' bed...and in the middle several beds have lush stands of clover...so we are more than half way to having the garden winterized and preparing itself for spring...three more beds to go plus the areas that are still supporting producing plants like tomatoes and peppers...mid october should find us with a fully winterized garden and some time to reflect on what to plant and nurture next spring...there are ideas bouncing around and some meetings planed...more will become known as decisions are made...stay tuned.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
