october 16, 2010 – cover crop and new gloves

After a late start on October 16, 2010, I did not arrive at the garden until almost 11:00 AM. The other volunteers had just finished packing and weighing the harvest, so I turned around and headed back north, towards the pantry.
 When I returned to the garden, the others were busy preparing beds for winter. Unfortunately, we ran out of cover crop seed midway through one of the beds. We probably overseeded the dodecahedron bed in our concern over its rehabilitation. We agreed to wait until early spring to plant more cover crop, as it would probably be too cold for any seed that we ordered now to germinate by winter.

Evelyn surprised us with a dozen new pairs of latex-dipped canvas gardening gloves. Our current inventory of gloves had become threadbare and mildewed, so the new gloves were welcome.
