We’ve been lucky with two good days of weather in a row. Fingers crossed for another one tomorrow! Today we rotated our compost piles and set up two new compost bins. These were graciously donated to the farm by Environmental Sustainability students Chelsey and Daniella! The soil is just dry enough to start planting out some of our seedlings. Today we transplanted swiss chard, cabbage, and kale! πŸ₯¬
Happy Sunday! It looks like we have some sunshine this coming week 🌀. This means our cabbage, kale and swiss chard will finally be transplanted into the garden! πŸ₯¬
