Work Days - September 25 -Oct. 1

Next week there will be 4 short (2 hours) work days.  Come if you can and stay as short or as long as you like.  Even 15 minutes of extra hands helps tremendously!

Sunday, Sept. 25, 9:00 to 11:00 we'll finish prepping the new bed we started last week for the 3rd grade grain crops and weed and feed the tomatoes, raspberries and strawberries.

Wednesday, Sept. 28, 3:00 to 5:00 we'll turn as many beds as we can (up to 4) and plant them in cover crop (vetch), add more layers to the compost, and weed, thin and add more plantings to the root crop bed.

Friday, Sept. 30, 1:00 to 3:00 we'll weed and feed the flower beds, stake up some of the tall plants that are falling over, and plant a few seeds that need fall planting for an early start in spring.

Saturday, Oct. 1, 9:00 to 11:00 we'll add more plantings to the leaf bed, weed and feed the leaf bed and the asparagus bed, and start prepping a brand new leaf bed if there are enough hands to take on the task.

Below is a photo of one of our regular volunteers, Therisa, in the middle of weeding one of the flower beds.  The photo I didn't get was of the adorable baby bunny who ran and hid in the weed patch.  He was just too fast for us!
