We came to work today and the ground is frozen and the remaining plants are also frozen. The season is officially over because this is a frost date. We are preparing to rip out every remaining plant, cut them into small pieces, sow the cut up parts into the soil and sow winter wheat seeds as a cover crop. Over the past weeks we had another successful annual harvest festival. We continue to save seeds to cut costs for next season and are seeing numerous garlic plants already growing as another winter cover crop. Once again we made bird feeders and we also made Christmas ornaments and wreaths using balsam branches and lip balm using beeswax, sweet orange oil and lavender oil.
