Harvest Time!

Our spring garden is still growing beautiful rainbow swiss chard, peppers and edible nasturtiums. And for the first time ever, we have planted a winter crop: baby kale, carrots, beets, radishes and lettuces are just starting to grow. Here’s hoping we get another few weeks of this amazing fall weather before our first big freeze.

Mayer parent and Garden Project beekeeper Chuck Linebaugh harvested the honey from our two hives recently. He has taken the supers down to his farm to extract the honey and we will have plenty to sell to our Mayer families.

Sunflower heads are being dried and seeds are being harvested, estimated, counted, separated, saved, recorded, roasted, tasted and made into sun butter. It’s pretty fascinating that one seed can eventually produce so much.
