Permaculture garden update

I’ve been busy, more so because my wife and I are both physically disabled.

Gardening at 7,000 feet means a short growing season and cool night, which is great for cool season crops. We’ve been harvesting kales, lettuces, radishes, sugar snap peas and green onions/chives (perennial walking onions).

Warm season crops require warm microclimates. My garden uses a lot of local sandstone rock and water jugs in the cold frame. Our runner beans, pickling cucumbers, yellow crookneck squash, cocozelle zucchini and a deep orange winter squash are flowering. Tomatoes, collard greens, and more are on their way.
