|a sea of tomatoes!|
A lot has been happening at the farm. We've planted out all the brassicas- kale, collards, and broccoli- for this season. Along with planting more rounds of lettuce, carrots, spinach, radishes, beets and chard. In a week or so we'll be planting out our warmer season crops- tomatoes, peppers, and beans.
We're harvesting more and more. With the warmer sunnier weather the plants are growing quickly! We've started selling an Asian greens mix, which in my (somewhat biased) opinion is delicious.

What else? The farm has been super lucky to have wonderful volunteers- without whom I couldn't get everything done! Thanks to them! We've had a lot of great visitors- friendly neighbors, folks from the Community Food Security Coalition Food Policy Conference that just happened by on their walking tour, and the walking club from NARA stop by weekly to check up on the progress of the farm. For these reasons I appreciate the farm's visibility. We've also had a super friendly neighborhood cat coming by... maybe she'll keep the crows away?
