Fall at the Winter Bounty Project: A slideshow

A few chilly nights earlier in the month seem to have knocked back the caterpillars, and now our winter bed is thriving, with five rows of lettuces, kale, chard, carrots, radishes, turnips, beets, rutabagas, leeks, fennel, spinach, and other assorted goodies. As long as the weather stays above freezing, we’ll leave the greenhouse over the summer bed where, amazingly, tomatoes are still setting blossoms that bees are pollinating. Greg is well into the project of installing barn-style sliding doors that will improve access in all seasons and improve airflow next summer.

Some photos of the greenhouse and its environs from the first two weeks of October:
