After a hearty crepe breakfast for fortification, we went outside for some winter garden assessment. Along with a lot of raking and picking up fallen pears and apples, there was one last winter vegetable harvest, too. We certainly do not need to visit the farmer’s market for a while. We have one in our own back yard.
There were many parsnips and beets, a few potatoes, and a smattering of carrots. We’re going to live off the harvest for the next week, and forgo the grocery store entirely.
This is the last of the squash. It’ll be delightful roasted!
We planted a cover crop of faba beans across three of the vegetable beds. It’ll grow in over the winter, and then we’ll till it under, to help fix nitrogen in the soil.
