Update from the Gardens
An August full moon is giving us a big late summer push of growth in the gardens. This growth is essential to the storage crops we have planted, like carrots and beets. It is also helping our autumn greens to germinate in the garden and hoophouse and get a head start while the daylight hours are quickly waning. Winter squash vines are starting to die back, revealing beautiful treasures for the autumn and winter. Even some of the pumpkin vines are slowing down and and color of orange is showing strong in the patch. The cabbage shows us we are in the downswing of the warm season as they turn in on themselves and become dense and hard for winter.
