Putting our Field to Bed

It has been a race against the clock as we get ready for winter! Just a few weeks ago I could head to the farm after work and still have plenty of hours of daylight to get things done. Now I run out of the office and arrive at the farm with only about an hour of light left.

I have been surprised about how much work is involved with putting the field to bed. We have busily been pulling out finished crops, tilling, planting garlic, seeding cover crops, and talking about our plans for next year. I am also surprised about how many veggies are still out there and looking excellent- our broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, and carrots have never looked so good!
This past weekend, we invited people out to the farm for our pumpkin patch. It was wonderful showing off our beautiful site and watching little ones pick out their favourite pumpkin and play in the mud. We also got lots of work done!
