We’ve been very busy this week working on the greenhouse (putting in insulation and shelves) and planting fall crops. So far, we’ve planted onions, lettuce, radishes, spinach, chard, peas, broccoli, and cabbage. I’m also trying a greenhouse-friendly cucumber variety. We’ll see if it works out. Since we’ve been so busy, I’ve had little time to write.
I did, however, dig up this great video about the Dervaes family. They have an urban homestead in Pasadena, growing an amazing amount of food on a small plot. They run the Path to Freedom site and the new gardening community site, Freedom Gardeners. I find them quite inspirational. Enjoy.
