Lots and lots of fingerlings
With the clouds patchy in the sky, some threatening to pour rain and some that looked happy and fluffy, the farm crew worked wonders once again.
In the morning, we started off with a word game and then split up into new groups per the request that was made on Friday. In the morning, one of the groups used scuttle hoes to clean up some of the smaller weeds in the U-pick section of the farm so that we can lay down some straw there soon. Another group weeded around the summer squash. The final group continued trellacing the tomatoes.
After break, the work continued with one group planting beets, cilantro, and a field mix of lettuce. Another group continued the much-needed weeding. The other group planted six 100 ft rows of fingerlings potatoes! Although it’s a little late to plant tomatoes, we’re hoping they do well anyway.
