Harvest 2016

Leek and red cabbage
The fall rye I had planted last fall turned out to be a great fertilizer. I plowed the green rye into the soil in April and only added a bit of compost. 

Parsnips and carrots
The summer of 2016 was great for gardeners in Alberta: it rained every other day and it was warm. Most farmers probably found it too wet, but I didn't have to use a tractor or combine to harvest so it was great for me.
