Upcoming Work Days

This past week, Aurora (one of our 3rd graders) and her grandfather came and helped work on the fence and build compost on Wednesday.  "Pepe" is very knowledgeable about gardening and had a lot of good advice to offer.  I look forward to seeing them out at the garden again soon.

On Friday I planted buckwheat for the bees.  Sadly, plans for sprinkling the jauche (fermented weed tea) and planting some leaf crops were cancelled on Saturday morning.  Hurricane Irene made the weather too iffy for what was planned.

We've got two work days scheduled for this week:

Wednesday, August 31, 8:30 to 12:30 we'll add a layer of kitchen scraps and dried weeds to the compost pile, plant carrots, beets and radishes, mound up some more soil around the leeks and weed the sweet potatoes.

Friday, Sept. 2, 10:00 to 1:00 we'll plant another bed of buckwheat and weed the flower beds.

As always it is perfectly OK to come and/or go at any time during the scheduled work hours.  Every little bit of help makes a big difference to the garden.  I hope to see you out there!
