Winter is closing in here. Daytime temperatures have fallen to the point where little or no growth can happen. Frost has killed many leaves. So, I harvested my horseradish, asparagus seeds (again), and the grapes. It’s amazing how many grapes escaped the earlier predation in September covered in leaves as they were. With the leaves gone I was able to harvest a few litres of grapes and will have hundreds of grape seedlings next year. They taste lovely and sweet this time of year. I even had a few beets survive the horrid summer and grow into worthwhile roots and tops into October.
It’s all good. I’ve ordered a bunch more seeds for trees:
- white oak,
- red oak,
- red maple,
- sugar maple,
- butternut, and
I may order an apple for the spring with Goodland on top and Antonovka for a root. I will splice the root and have both Goodland and Antonovka both good-sized hardy apple trees. I need more apples to feed the rabbits and deer faster so some will be left for me… 😉
