Today, we are headed off to Spain, where it will be warm and the oranges grow wild. I’m writing a series of articles for Travel Indie, and will be trekking around Barcelona, Madrid, the ocean town of Castellon, and Valencia, traveling by high speed bullet trains (oh, la-la). When my friend Laurie of Fleur-de-lys farm heard, she immediately dropped off this classic James Michener book about his voyages through Spain, and it seemed a fitting start to our adventure.

Before I go, I wanted to share some garden pics of the fall garden and cover crops. Oh, and this too cute terrarium made by Abby, of GoodnPlanty. I got it at the From Scratch market last week, which featured tons of indie crafts, including my friends from the crafty coven, Z-town made.

I am in love with this terrarium!

My cover crop, Peace Valley’s Organic Soil Builder of vetch, winter peas, bell beans and cayuse oats, (pictured with Fritz the Cat above) is doing well. It’s even taller now, and grows like crazy once established.

And, here are the Red Oats I planted, also from Peace Valley (they have the best cover crop selection, anywhere). I planted these a little late, but with this mellow november, they have a chance (despite what Tim Stark says;)

There’s still plenty to forage, and we have a lot of Seeds of Change Utah Celery and Fedco’s Champion Collards to pick.

Until next time, chow!
