Winter is fast approaching here in Northern Oregon. Temperatures are starting to dip below freezing. Growth in the Gardens has slowed almost to a standstill.
I am amazed how much these two little gardens have provided. The first round of radishes were harvested around the 20th of April. Now, more than six month later, we are still harvesting kale and broccoli.
It has been rewarding learning about how to grow and harvest food. And who knows, with the uncertainty that climate change brings, it may be increasingly important for all of us to learn about and reconnect with the basics of self-sufficiency and sustainable living. Luckily, nature does most of the work. All we have to do invest a little time and a little love.
I hope you all are doing well and continuing to stay safe. Happy holidays!
Here are a few highlights from the 2020 growing season.
