March 7

The 9th grade work crew came out today.  When you can capture their attention and focus their power, they are a force to be reckoned with in the garden.

Here you can see some of them working on clearing out the area for our coming bee hives.

There was a tangle of brush to clear at one end of the area.
Here is another batch of fellows clearing off the old pile of dried weeds and carrying it over to the new compost pile.  

What with our renter, Sarah, boarding extra horses and a load of black gold (cow manure) from Minka Farm gathered by our own 3rd graders on Friday and delivered by Farmer Kimberly, we have plenty of nutritious "stuff" for this spring's compost pile.  The biodynamic compost preps will be arriving in early April and we'll have good compost just in time for fall bed prep if all goes well.
