The Little Garden That Could

This is it, the final market this year. The garden gave us her all. She is just about all picked out but remarkably we still have tomatoes, green beans and a handful of zucchini. The season started out with lots of greens and some troublesome groundhogs. We’ll be closing it out the same way. Kale seems to be the delicacy of choice for the groundhogs but they left us some and it’s in prime form along with all the other greens.

Working in the garden and seeing you all each week proved to be a real salve for a turbulent year, keeping me grounded and connected. Thank you for your presence and support!

Here’s hoping we can see the year out peacefully and in good health,


At the market:

  • arugula
  • asian greens
  • baby bok choy
  • carrots
  • chard
  • chinese cabbage
  • collards
  • eggplant
  • escarole

  • herbs – parsley, cilantro, dill
  • hot peppers
  • kale
  • lettuce
  • potatoes
  • radishes – red and watermelon
  • salad turnips
  • tomatoes
  • winter squash – delicata and honeynut
  • zucchini

  1. Thx, Nora !

    BTW you have terrific writing skills, in addition to organic gardening.

    I’m still isolating for a few more days so could you bag up the veggies again ?

  2. Nora,

    Thank you for all the great sustenance you’ve provided to us and to so many others this summer and fall. The kale, especially, was of epic goodness, though I could go on (and on). We have enjoyed so greatly the fruits of your hard labor, and we’re tremendously grateful.

    Much love,
