Thank-you for a Great Season.

Jenny and I got the garden cleaned up today with help from Ian, Cedar, and Hudson. We left in kale and lettuce so please help yourselves. 

Thanks to Yvonne for the tomatoes - they continue to be awesome. We couldn't have done the weeding without all your help: Laura, Max, Hannah, Christina, Ian, Pat, Noah, Roberta, LuraLee, Hudson, and Cedar. Thanks to Kevin and Nancy for watering. And thanks also to Joe and the Village at Brookline/WinnResidential for the use of their fence-line without whom we wouldn't have a garden

As always, feedback is welcome, as are suggestions and donations for 2013. (We are looking for a new hose reel in 2013)

Peas and lovage.

p.s. Tomatillo salsa is awesome. Next time I will use all the jalapenos!

200' Fall Clean-up - Sat. Oct. 27@1:30 pm

Dear 200' Garden Blog Readers and Gardeners, 

I have both good and sad news. The sad news is that the 2012 garden season is coming to a close. All are welcome to come help put the garden to bed for the winter. Fall Clean-up begins Saturday October 27 @1:30 pm. We'll have some snacks and  apple cider.

We still have green tomatoes, salad greens, kale, and oregano. Here's a sampling of last weekend's haul. Can you say Tomatillo Salsa!? (Does anyone still have cilantro ...).

The good news is that it is time to plan for 2013. If you have suggestions for next year and/or  feedback on 2012, we'd love to hear from you (all feedback is welcome). For example, some people would like larger cucumbers and tomatoes. Got it! At National food day this evening I tried some sage lemonade and it was delicious! Sage is another one for 2013. Feel free to email me at

Hope to see you Saturday!
