The early fall rains have officially arrived in the Pemberton Valley. As I sit inside, sipping tea, the winter rye that was scattered in next year’s field is finally getting the good soaking it needs to germinate and grow before the onset of winter. This is only one of the many early signs around the farm that fall is here, others include, but are not limited to:
- A first light frost damage on squash and sweet potato plants.
- The local momma bear and two cubs are finding our carrots as a good source of calories for their pre-hibernation diet.
- Biking home in the drizzle, darkness of fall.
- Rootdown farmers have time to update blog-stay tuned!
