Prepping for Bread Classes

just to let you know:  we are going to be teaching a bread class, ie, growing the barley, threshing it, grinding it, baking it and finally eating it!!!! Saturday, I went to the garden to put it to bed finally, and you can see the marigolds there and the green stuff, I think that was celery…and this is December!  I decided to keep the lettuce there, in order to go back and have some for the table; , and i put the fall leaves in the plot, so that when the rains came it will be easy to turn into the soil, and I put the cover back on they can decompose.   My hope is to be able to get some more compost to turn into the soil, and have it be really ready for the barley, which i am planning to plant mid-to late March, depending on the weather.   So keep checking back, and I will be putting up posts of our progress!
