The garden is getting a fall makeover! Students have been working out in the garden all afternoon tilling our garden beds and getting ready to plant fall crops. We’ve already planted beets, spinach, lettuce, and garlic. Now it’s time to set up our beds with cover crops and row covers for winter…
Gear up for the local foods fest at the AJLC this Saturday between 1:00-4:00. During this fest, AJLC staff will be working in the garden getting the last summer crops harvested, preserved and ready for over-wintering. We would love all the volunteer power we can muster on Saturday to keep our grounds healthy through winter. Learn some organic practices, a bit of permaculture, and some about preservation, or just ask us questions! Hope to see you there!

We had a bountiful harvest of green beans, tomatoes, and squash today! We’ll be donating a lot of our harvest to OCS. We’re also still sun-drying a ton of the tomatoes, so that they preserve. Oh summertime, we wish you’d never end!
It’s been a busy past to weeks in the garden here at the AJLC. Yesterday, we harvested 2 gallons (WOAH!) of tomatoes and donated them to OCS! We also have a ton of squash coming in, mainly summer butternut and pattypan varieties. Our grapes have also completely ripened. Yum! Since the summer is…
Our newly built solar food dehydrator is up and running! We have dehydrated cherry and pear tomatoes, dill, oregano, chives, mint, as well as seed pods (for saving seeds for next year’s planting season) in the past week, and it has been wildly successful! Check it out:
From left to right: Dried chives, oregano and mint, two jars of dill, saved marigold seeds, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Food preservation is awesome!
