Nearing The Big Cold

We're making our way through the transition to the cold season. We planted the rest of the garlic and lined the outsides of the coldframes with mulch for added insulation. Unfortunately, we had lost some arugula the week before when a cold snap penetrated the coldframes. Double-layers of plastic are in order, although they would have been too hot earlier in November!
Planning is in action to bring honey-bees to campus, and it's looking promising! On another successful note, we have received approval to sell food at Fiddleheads next fall!
In the interest of celebrating food, hard work and good company, we held a Sprout dinner for our own in Earth House. As you can see by the wide smiles a good time was had by all and we'll be holding another shindig next semester.
