This morning a photographer from the Ithaca Times and a journalist from the Ithaca Journal visited the farm. Keep an eye out for this press coverage! When they came, we were in full swing with our morning weeding duties and having a little more fun with it than usual. There was a lot of cross-communication between rows and two people even had a weed-filled wheel-barrel race towards the compost pile. I think everyone is really starting to come together as a group.
After break, we got a lot of planting done. What went in were watermelon, diakon radishes, pickling cucumbers, napa, watefield, and red cabbage. Those who weren't planting were either weeding within the leek bed or trellacing another row of tomato plants.
Because we will be low on staff during the next week due to both Dan and Ann going on vacations, we are asking that volunteers from the community join us Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday this week from 9-1 and Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday of next week from 9-1 as well. Thanks!
