Things are starting to spring to life down at the farm!
Bright swiss chard planted in our cold frame by the Sustainable Food Systems class graciously donated by Sarah Pittoello!
Leeks (left) and Potatoes (right) planted by the Sustainable Food Systems class are also taking off down at the farm.
The Radish seeds that were planted two weeks ago are starting break ground! They are the first of all the planted seeds to show signs of life. We are still waiting on beans, beets, carrots, cabbage, and lettuce to sprout.
The tomato transplants are starting to settle into their new homes with a nice blanket of straw to help hold the water in the soil on those hot valley summer days.
Further down the farm there is a lot of progress being made with the community members personal plots! I encourage anyone who is interested, to explore the Acadia Community Farm. You do not need to have a plot to visit the farm, all are welcome!
If you are interested in getting a plot to grow your own food reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Winter is finally over and for those with a pile of wood ash at home you might be wondering if you can use it in your garden. Yes you can according to the Oregon State University Extension Service. Wood ash can be useful in gardens, in your compost pile or as a pest repellent, but apply carefully.
