Re: Farming/Homesteading October Chat Thread

On the winter garden note, I'm not doing it this year. I will be next year. I have a portable garage we are converting to a green house, I just didn't have the motivation or the $$ to finish it this year.

But it's totally possible even in the colder climates, you just have to keep it protected from the wind and snow. Check out 'The four season harvest' by Elliot Coleman I borrowed it from the library a while ago and my 'local' co-op held a tour of his gardens (I knew he lived in Maine I just thought it was further south, I guess he's actually relativly local).
