We are fortunate, here in the piedmont area of North Carolina, to be able to garden more or less year-round. Fall gardens do especially well here, one reason being that our soil temperatures stay warm, allowing for good root growth, while the air temperatures moderate.
Many of you have been kind enough to tell us what you’d like us to grow this fall, and we have listened. From mid-August through the end of September, we’ll be planting crops that we can harvest well into December.
And so last week, we called on the children of MP2 to help us get our fall garden started. About ten children came to help us prepare the soil, plant our first crop of ‘Yaya’ carrots, and play in the sprinklers.
We hope the MP2 children will continue to be involved in the garden this fall, learning about how to care for one another as we care for our environment.
