Sunday, was a busy, busy day!
Lots of garden work and preservation that kept us busy from sunup to sundown.
In the garden, worn out summer vegs were taken down and replaced with a fresh batch for late summer harvest. Fall crops are being planted in the greenhouse and winter seed supplies ordered.
A few of the “volunteer” (self sown) pumpkins complete with veggie ‘Freedom Gardens’ propaganda were harvested. Can you guess who’s Mr Pumpkin head?
Another round of water bath canning, preserving homegrown peaches, beans, figs, strawberries and plums (from a crop swap)
Weekly animal chores included cleaning out the coop and animal enclosure.
Just a typical day here on the family urban home-farm stead!
This Sunday we’ll be hitching up the wagon heading into town to participate at the Sustainable LA festival.
