Answering the Call

Leave a comment

I put out a somewhat desperate call to our CSA supporters last week. After two weeks of rain, our ongoing transition to the next round of crops, and attempts to keep the weeding and pruning and fertilizing at bay, it was time for a BIG workday. Thanks to all who answered the call – Sarah and David, Damon, Melissa, Elizabeth, and Jessie – we managed to fit seven hours of work into one! Thank you, thank you, thank you all!

Here are a few photos from the day.

The carrot bed was cleared….


….and got some broadforking, to make room for the squashes that are already making their home on its southern edge.


The first round of green beans got some support.


The “extra” row of tomatoes and the tomatillos got some much needed food.


Also done but not pictured – carrots cleared from another location to make room for more beans. “Garden of Eden” variety. Sounds about right to me.
