SAYONARA SUMMER

{note: this entry was written over ONE week ago, and delayed in publishing by the injured duck }

There’s some interesting goings on around the urban homestead  The guys have been filling up the driveway with piles of sand, lumber is being brought in, coils of huge black hoses and more!

Yep, there’s some serious work going on!  Another shed is going up  — this one for beekeeping and honey supplies.

In addition, the 50 raised beds are getting a new layer of wood.  And no we aren’t buying any soil – all the soil is coming from right here on the urban homestead.  Thanks to our extensive composting efforts, couple thousand worms and a handful of birds and two cute goaties we are practically self sufficient when it comes to soil.

Not only is there garden work going on but there’s talk of putting in a subsurface greywater system.

Like I said A LOT is happening!

Right now in the garden we are in the ‘tween season.  Summer crops still lingering while new fall crops are going in.

Still harvesting beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, squash.

What we are direct sowing (with a few soil blocks thrown in)

Greens – lettuce, kale, swiss chard, cress, arugula and more!

Next up

Snow peas, broccoli, carrots, turnips
