The shallots are sprouting.
Winter rye in both boxes. The right previously contained peas, which harbor bacteria that grab nitrogen from the air, fertilizing the soil.
The last tomatillos of the season.
And in jelly jars, for scale.
Hope y’all like pictures of rye, cuz that’s pretty much the only thing growing at Cornelia Farms these days.
Leave town for a few days and the garden always surprises me. Looks like the rye is happy.
