Now that the world is covered in a blanket of white, and all of that growth we’ve been enjoying so late into the season is buried several feet under, I thought I’d post a few pictures of our last several harvests this season. It’s hard to believe these were taken just a few weeks ago! I was especially awed by that black eyed susan, still hanging on in the midst of winter.
I have some good news and some bad news to share.
The bad news first: our high tunnel, the large one on the lower section of our property, completely collapsed beneath the weight of the snow. It has been especially disheartening to me as I’ve been working on securing grant funding to build end walls for it to make it even stronger and more efficient over the past few months. And we were planning on adding 30 yards of organic topsoil to the hugulkultur bed and building a groundhog fence around it come spring. We had grand plans for that tunnel! Bill, always the optimist, says we’ll have it up and running again by the end of summer. Or replaced. Time will tell. And I’ll keep you posted.
The good news: our smaller high tunnel still stands. And, the seeds have arrived!
We’ll be planting in the greenhouse in just a few weeks. If anyone would like to help out, please let me know. In the meantime, enjoy all of the snow 😉
