This is my final monthly review of the farm for 2014, combining the months of November and December. November starts out with a hard push to get the fields ready for winter before the rains render the fields too wet to enter with the tractors.
After a couple of weeks the workload slows down considerably, and I switch modes to winter maintenance and planning and preparing for the next farm year.
I have been searching for an interesting installation for the center of our Lavender Labyrinth. When I saw some photos of spiral gardens I knew that a raised spiral herb garden would be just the right addition to our labyrinth.
The Spiral Garden invites exploration. It looks different from every angle. The garden bed ramps up, so many of the plants are raised off the ground and are easier to see and tend.
