Where has it gone? It has flown by so fast and so much happened my head is spinning. The corn harvest came, went, was huge and delicious. What members didn’t take and eat was sold at the farmers market and as we still had corn we gave at least 5 feed bags to our local senior citizens center, Salvation Army, Servalution(free medical clinic and food pantry) and CCM(Food pantry in Middlesboro,ky). The last field was picked by LMU students getting a Community service experience during orientation. What Fun!!!Then there were our potatoes-best potatoes ever!
The Bond family took all kinds of vegetables and canned goods to the Bell county fair and won lots of ribbons! We are so proud of them!
We’ve started fall crops in the greenhouses, raised beds and the in ground garden. They are popping up OK and I just hope they don’t succumb to the 90’s we’ve been having. We are really hoping to do well with the winter gardening techniques Preston Jones turned us on to in the winter gardening workshop by Cathy Rehmeyer, PhD, author of “Garden Under Cover: Low Tunnel Winter Vegetable Production” and the gardening blog, “Mother of a Hubbard.” Thanks to you Preston for having that great workshop.
