Our fall 2010 garden
We took possession of the place in late July, 2010. Fortunately, we had a greenhouse full of tender plants that we had grown for our Ebey Island garden, which we knew we would be loosing at the end of 2010. We made immediate use of a large raised bed (about 40 x 3 ft and 2 ft high) that had not been planted by the seller. We added a truck load of Cedar Grove compost and some cotton seed meal and planted broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, carrots, leeks and parsnips. It all thrived except the parsnips which didn't germinate. So this fall we had produce already from the new place.
By Thanksgiving, we had harvested all the broccoli. The freeze just before the holiday The brussel sprouts live on and the kale came through the freeze well.
