Yesterday Loren's dad, Zach spent the full four hour work time out at the garden. Zach works full time at Minka Farm so he brought a lot of good advice with him and we flew through the task list. We added several thick layers to the compost:
and planted a section of carrots, beets and radishes in the root bed:
Rula and her youngest son also helped with weeding the sweet potatoes. The fence is only about half finished so the plants are still lacking a lot of their foliage because of 4 legged marauders that keep getting in, but at least they aren't competing with the weeds for sunlight and water any more.
Zach also had a look at our leeks and declared them more than ready for harvesting. They'll be for sale at the first fall market.
