There’s still a pile of compost on the driveway, but it’s less than half the size it was this morning. And it’s only there because I didn’t let folks mulch non-farm related areas. Those feel like personal responsibility. Not because we couldn’t have moved it all in a single day. So, once again, I am amazed by what a small group of people can accomplish when we come together and set our head, heart, and hands to it.
Here are a few highlights from the day.
The kids went worm hunting,
and they took the new wheelbarrow out for a roll.
Henry and Marc assembled our new farm toy – the broadfork.
Then Henry, David, and Andrew put it to work.
Cora, Melissa, Kate, Pam, Elizabeth, and I planted and transplated – leeks, cabbage, radicchio spinach, radish, kale, chard, peas, and fennel.
Then Carrie and I put them all to bed under a nice frost blanket.
And, of course, we moved about 7 yards of compost! (Go early team that didn’t get caught on film – Jess, Kathy, Damon, Emily, Mark, and Joanna, and Sarah!)

It was a VERY good day.
