Volunteer Days May 27 to June 2, 2012

Monday, May 28 from 1 to 4:  We'll plant beans, harvest the grains, finish putting up the trellises, and work on the chicken coop.

Thursday, May 31 from 8:30 to noon:  We'll plant buckwheat in B1, hill the potatoes, check to see if the ginger is ready for hilling yet, and weed all of the root beds.

Friday, June 1:  We'll finish whatever we didn't get done on Thursday.

Pictures of the Week
This is our ginger experiment.  Rather than growing it with loads of organic fertilizer in a soilless medium, we're trying biodynamic compost and watering it with compost tea.  So far so good.

Plants that the botany class has been working with in the greenhouse.

The photo doesn't really do it justice, but this is the sort of thing I've gotten used to seeing on the blackboard when I peak into the greenhouse, beautiful pictures of flowers and plant parts.
