The tomatoes have been cleared and cover crop planted. The chard will stay for the winter…for either the new owners or deer to eat!

Just a quick update:

The sale of our house on Sauvie Island is set to close today. As of 5:00 pm this afternoon, we will be renters. It is hard to believe it is really happening. Everything is still on track for the purchase of our new farm, which, if all goes as planned, will close on December 3.

This bed is ready for winter rain

The past few weeks have been a mix of tasks to prepare for the move, packing and putting the garden to bed for the winter. The majority of my time has been spent on the first two items, though with Steven’s help, I got one more “field” seeded with cover crop and Jonas has been plugging away on the last few beds, weeding and getting bare ground covered with leaves. Today, I will spend some time on bookkeeping, before it is back to more packing.

I hope I bought more boxes than we need…
