The light is dimming and the colors are drab at the gardens now. The leaves are off the trees. Not much left growing. My lettuce is gone – the last few heads were killed by the cold. Today I harvested escarole, arugula, beets and radish. In the next few days our temperatures are forecast to plummet to the mid 20’s (F) at night. Bbrrr.
Skippy and I had a nice walk today after gardening. We met a super playful, 9 mo old golden – Australian Shepard mix (Cassie) and her friendly owner. Skippy and Cassie raced through the garden paths and fields. Then they tumbled and wrestled in the fading light. They played more than an hour. Skippy loved being herded by a cute young female. He’ll sleep well tonight.
The other day, I was asked by our community garden coordinator to help with organization. I’m looking forward to this. The main work will be to organize and run the garden clean up and plot assignment day in mid April. It would be nice to add another group event to the schedule too.
