Work Days Nov. 27 to Dec. 3, 2011

Tuesday, November 29 from 2 to 3 we'll have a short work day to work on the nettle, finish turning the early spring leaf bed and do a little weeding in our late fall leaf beds.

Friday, December 2 from 1 to 3 we'll finish weeding the larger of our two permanent flower beds, transplant some calendula and larkspur and start prepping one of our annual beds for phacelia, a cover crop that produces lots of flowers loved by bees.

Come on by for any amount of time during the work days.  These are probably some of the last few warmish days we'll have before winter starts in earnest.  Hanging out in the garden is a great way to soak up that last little bit of sunshine before we get to our shortest day of the year (Dec. 22) and the coldest month of the year (January).

Here is a part of a path cleared by Anthony and Nicholas, two of our sophomores, a few weeks ago.  Now third grade can get to the farm easily without being hampered by trees and bushes as they go!
