Farm Life Vegetables and Berries

Last Rays

The weather has been playing tricks on us. After two (almost consecutive) frosts last week, we saw balmy temperatures again early this week – just enough for our veggies to recover from the brief cold spell. At this time of year, every sunny day counts, particularly if there are two or three in a row. It gives us time to clean out spent portions of field and sow green manure as quickly as possible. Ideally, we’ll want all the fields to have a good ground cover for the winter – even if it means sowing late into October. In fact, warmer falls mean we can sow oats even in November.

PS: we’ve posted pictures of our annual mechoui. Thanks to all who forwarded their pics.
