Fall on the Farm

Broccoli growing on white plastic. The plastic was amazing at conserving moisture during our very dry year, not to mention the benefits of keeping the weeds down.
Adam harvesting turnips in one of several turnip patches.

Scarlet Queen Turnips!! Beautiful and delicious.

Swiss rainbow Chard growing beside our old stand of corn.

Cabbage plants growing on white plastic. The white plastic reflects more light, so the ground is not heated up like it is with black plastic. Amazing how the plants adapted to this environment and did better than similar plants not planted on plastic.
