While cold weather may be slowly approaching, a beautiful day in East Boston meant opportune time for some communal garlic planting! With all the summer-time vegetables now harvested, Our Garden prepares for the winter by becoming home to many winter-ready garlic beds.
To add to the festivities, fresh apples were cut and pressed into instant cider much to everyone’s enjoyment (machine yet again a courtesy of Peter Chipman).
Leftover apple scraps made perfect food for our red wiggler worms, whose castings (vermicompost) were up for grabs today as well. This nutrient-rich end product is a powerful source of food for plants, including the garlic planted today!
