On the Farm- October 18th
Much of the work this week has been cleaning, putting to bed. I pull plants laden only with rotting fruit. I gather hoops and row covers, pull up plastic and chicken fencing. But, amid all the taking down, we also planted the garlic.
Bulbs were broken down into cloves. Many hands helped press the cloves into the moist soil on Saturday morning. Crouching figures quickly filled the holes as they were formed.
Thanks to everyone who pitched in and made quick work of the planting job. Thanks to those who stuck around and helped us make 4-5 gallons of delicious apple cider. It is always a pleasure working, eating and growing with you.
