It’s the time of year when we start to harvest more varieties of veggies, like beets, and start to see the signs of other bounty to come.
On Friday, June 10, Brian and I started the day by harvesting over 40 pounds of Early Wonder red beets…
…Lacinato Kale, Red Russian Kale, Mesclun Greens, Rainbow Chard, Arugula, and a few heads of lettuce for our community partners.
Later that day we were joined by a number of volunteers who helped us plant seedlings of Deer Tongue Lettuce and Rainbow “Bright Lights” Chard.
Marie Kelly (Class of 2000 and Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations), her husband Chris, and their son Ian helped us plant lettuce and stake the tomatoes.
On Friday, we were also joined by Janine DiLorenzo (Class of 2011) and her pup Wilson for most of the day. Janine helped Ian prepare spots for the lettuce and Wilson kept a close eye on the spacing between plants for us.
That very same day, Nick Howard (Class of 2013) was present to lend a hand to summer farmer Michelle.
We had quite a happy farming crew and at the end of the day we all took a good look at the newest addition to the farm: our storage shed!
We welcome you to join us at the farm as we feed the soil with compost, plant, weed, harvest, and continue to grow!
