Fall garden update:

As the shorter days and colder temperatures arrive, we slowly take our beds out of cash crops, and plant winter cover crops.  This year, we are doing a winter wheat and winter pea mix.  Here are some pictures of these cover crops at various stages of growth:

Just prior to taking these pictures, I harvested, washed, and bunched our last planting of French Breakfast radish.  They are the best we’ve grown this season.
