Though it doesn’t feel much like August (yeah, I know I said that before!) the summer veggies are still hanging in there; however, the cucumbers look a little raggedy but there’s plenty of new younguns to replace the worn our elders – plants I mean.   So to keep a successful rotation going we planted more squash, beans, cucumbers and even tomatoes (for hopefully a fall/winter crop)  Fall plantings are just starting but we are holding off on going all out even though it does feel more like October.   Using every square inch as Farmer D likes to say is key to keeping this mirco farm productive ad I think much of our harvesting success is that there’s never an empty bed and that comes with successive plantings.

Don’t forget to order your fall seeds from profits go to help supporting this site!

There’s also some interesting work being done on one side of the house.  I overheard Farmer D talking with Farmer J and I could make out words like – greywater, diverter, bath tub, pipes, laundry.  Hmmm, I’m intrigued! Seems there’s some sort of greywater operation in the works.  Stay tuned for more!

Three entries down and one more to go on this mini posting blitz here at LHITC.
