Tilley Family Report on Winter Gardening

Hello Anne Marie!

Today the Tilley family went to the Farmers Market on Sandy Ridge. We went with "local" and "winter garden" in mind. What we found were fresh apples, beans,eggs, cucumbers, honey and some big beautiful tomatoes. Our tomatoes are still going at the house but we couldn't pass these by. One of the vendors had different types of lettuce in trays, so we got several for the winter garden. Tammy picked out some turnip, radish and beet seed packs with two bags of soil. The lettuce is now in large and medium pots on the back deck and the seeds will be planted in a raised bed once we have time to prepare it. That's a small but big step for us and we're excited!
