11.2.11 After the storm

The covers are raised to let the beds breathe during the sunny days following the snowstorm. Daytime temperatures have been averaging in the 50’s, and falling into the 30’s at night. Though the snow has mostly vanished, we’re still finding small piles of it still lurking in the cooler parts of the garden. As we begin the task of raking leaves, these reminders make us take note of the peculiarity of having a snowstorm in October.

Radishes, kales and salad greens thriving under cover — we hope to keep our supply going until the end of the year. Much as we resent having to buy them a beer, little cups of it nestled into the beds help keep the slugs at bay.
