November 19, 2012

Well, today has been one of the wettest days to date this fall! The coming of winter is ever present, and the plants are feeling it too. Some crops are suited well for this time of year, and are still growing in the garden. These crops include:

Brussel Sprouts!!
  • chard  
  • kale
  • sunchokes
  • broccoli
  • many herbs such as peppermint, lemon balm, rosemary, parsley and oregano
  • sorrel
  • turnips
  • parsnips
  • collards
  • leeks
  • comfrey
  • carrots
  • lettuce
  • celery
  • brussel sprouts (like it cool!)
  • radishes

Baby Carrots!
Luckily, we have a fantastic greenhouse to keep some plants cozy and warm during the fall and winter. This allows us to keep growing certain crops that wouldn't make it outside in the cold, harsher environment. We also can utilize this warm environment to plant new seeds, and grow plant starts to create our plant nursery. Some things we are growing in the greenhouse now are:
  • baby carrots
  • tomatoes
  • peppers
  • stevia
  • butterhead lettuce
  • snow pea starts
  • austrian pea cover crop
  • pac choi greens
