new growth

October might seem a funny time to see new growth in south central Pennsylvania. But we need to eat all winter, and want to eat local as much as we can.

Lettuce and other greens keep getting planted. Every week a few more beds of seeds go in. We have until mid-November to supply our CSA members, and then all winter to gauge how much we can harvest in the dead of winter. Of course these beds will get covered..the hoophouse sides will go on this week, and the beds inside and out will get floating row covers. Homer is conducting his own, semi-scientific experiment, to see how the same lettuce does with 2 layers of protection versus 1 layer of protection.
