Here it is, mid October in Western NY, and I still found a bit to harvest this morning. Usually, I'd have turned it all over by now. With encouragement from some other bloggers, "One-Hundred-Dollars-A-Month, The Garden Geeks, and Shawna Coronado," I have not only extended my veggie garden grow time, but have planted late harvest of carrots. The changing climate might have a bit to do with it.
Now you may not think this is a big deal, but for me it has given me the courage to move past traditional local thinking, and move into uncharted territory for me. I am going to try to start a small spring green house as well, stay tuned.
