Sunday, Sept. 11, 9:30 to 12:00 we will tend the flower beds by weeding, feeding and edging them.
Wednesday, Sept 14, 8:30 to 9:30 we will stir and spray fermented horsetail. Stirring and spraying the biodynamic preps is always a pleasant experience. Small children especially enjoy sprinkling the preps around once they have been stirred so feel free to bring them with you. Come join the fun!
Friday, Sept. 16, 2:00 to 4:30 is a day when I can really use all the extra help I can get. We have one more bed to prepare for the grain crops that 3rd grade traditionally plants in fall. Bed preparation is simple, but time consuming because we choose to do it all by hand at Emerson Farm. If four people were able to come and work hard for 2 hours we should be able to get it done. Are you one of the four? :-)
Here is a candid of someone I caught in the tomato patch recently.
Eastern box turtles are omnivorous so he could be after the slugs or the tomatoes, or both. I asked him if he would please stick to slugs and tomato hornworms as a special favor. I hope to see him around again soon.
