Towards Samhain

Samhain (or Halloween for 21st century folk) is rushing upon us! Josh and I will surely eternally know this season as garlic-planting time, and Josh is in fact out there preparing beds for the garlic cloves he's been hobbitting away in our coat closet.

He's been dutifully breaking up the heads into nice clean usable, plantable cloves. Without any help from me, I should add. And moreover, he's applied 6 full cubic yards of compost to the field thus far, in preparation for the planting imminent.

It's been pretty much nonstop rain since Friday, and cold too. Like, sur-natural cold. Like, dude, we had snow on Friday! While we were trying to deliver our last batch of veggies to CSA members!

Also, now's the time for cleaning trays, cleaning the greenhouse, cleaning your gut. Putting away the summer shorts and getting out all that dreaded clothing that mummifies for 8 months.

But no complaints. Tis a gradual thing and there is many a tree with many a green leaf yet, in addition to the reds and golds and oranges.
