The Inauguration and Beyond!

Hello Farm Friends!
A huge thank-you is in order to everyone who came out for the Big Hill Farm Inauguration.  None of us are math majors, but we'd estimate over 100 people - students, staff, family, friends, alumns and community members - were able to attend.  We hope everyone enjoyed the live music, Cedar Summit ice cream, the farm and the company!  We think this event was a HUGE success and cannot wait until the Harvest Festival this fall.  There was also a short rain shower in the middle followed by a rainbow - a blessing perhaps?
Above: We're working hard to improve the quality of the soil so we can grow healthy plants.  Thus far we have tilled it up (with the help of our new friends at Grandma's Little Acre) and added compost and manure.   More on this later...
Above: Oh hey Jordan!  The rain during the Inauguration altered our creative process for the Big Hill sign-painting (on the shed) - but no hard feelings.

Above:  We've been busy these last couple weeks!  Thus far we have worked on the fence and planted strawberries, radishes, onions, potatoes, raspberries, blueberries and corn.
Above:  Here's me! (Eliza) working on the onion beds.  Finally some beautiful weather after a freezing weekend and a 97 degree 500 mph windy spell of days.
