Roger Swain is in the vegetable garden doing the fall chores. He cleans the beds and adds manure to the soil, along with a generous spreading of ground limestone. After raking the bed smooth, he plants winter rye that will germinate within a few days. It will help prevent soil erosion during the winter months. In the spring, it will be turned into the soil providing additional nourishment.
He harvests collards, 'Top Bunch' for Marian's next recipe.
