It's all happenin.
Here's the scoop:
The seeds are germinating!! The tray of roma's has almost completely germinated and they look strong and healthy. The peppers are close behind as they just started germinating a couple days ago and look wonderful! We have been watering them religiously and keepin' a close eye.
We officially have farm interns: Lucas Neher, Jordan Walker, Steve Palmer, Sarah Jabar. Yayyy.
We took a trip to Menards yesterday and had our first tool buying adventure. We bought shovels, rakes, pitchforks, hand trowels, fencing material, etc. and we assembled a wheelbarrow!
And thennnn we used the newly purchased tools to move the compost and put chicken wire around it. We layered it with straw and when the rain falls, wonderful decomposition will happen. The bottom layer of the food scrap pile was already decomposing and leaching wonderful nutrients into the soil! We are very excited about the compost progress. & we want to Thank the dining services for all the food scraps they have been giving to us!!!
Also, there is now a beautiful layer of compost and giant shed on the plot!! Thanks to the Gustavus Physical Plant!
Well, that's all for now... There's no tillin' what's going to happen next :)
