Although it stormed for most of the day, which stopped us from finishing a lot of what we had planned on getting done, we still accomplished a great deal today.
Before the rain came, we weeded in a very unorganized fashion. Although some people did some great work, we decided that next time it will be better to stick with the groups for this task. After break, one group worked on getting some lettuce starts going. Another group transplanted dill, but didn't quite get to the pickling cucumbers, beets, and pole beans that were meant to go in before the rain. The last group started clearing large rocks out of the upper field so that we can keep planting up there too.
Yesterday morning, a group of serious farmers ignored the Ithaca Festival and the approaching storm and showed up at the farm. They braved the torrential downpour to plant more flowers and basil. Now, that's dedication!
