The windows need to be closed in the evenings, sitting in the warm sun is no longer a given, and halloween candy is all over the shelves. Here in the Alchemy Farmhouse garden, Autumn means getting the lead out to plant fall crops and create coldframes. I’ll be working on that for the next few weeks, and will post pictures and instructions for anyone who would like to create their own to lengthen the growing season or get a jump start this spring. But in the meantime, enjoy the weather and meet me at the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in Saugerties, NY next weekend! It’s in its 20th year and runs from 10-6 on saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. There’s tons of stinky, savory garlic foods to try, music for dancing, and garlic for planting. I’ll see you there!
