Early Bird

Well, in our excitement and anxiety about this growing season we’ve started as much produce as possible wayyyy before the frost date. We constructed hoops of PVC and rebar and covered them with contractor’s plastic to keep the ground (and plants) as warm as possible. The pictures below are of our “square foot” garden bed, borrowing Mel Bartholomew’s now-famous idea. It’s been a great way to achieve extreme diversity in a small space, and it looks awesome too. This would be an excellent system for the home-gardener with space and time constraints.

This is just one of our many beds, but it’s a great example of what’s to come!

    Hana, Please let me know when you will be open and selling produce — by email. I don’t necessarily want to get a lot of emails, but I would like to know when I can drop by to pick up some good, locally grown food. I’m a friend of Brooke Triplett’s and your mom’s.

    Please add me to your email list. I am a friend of Paige, and got the invitation to the first dinner, but could not come.
    Thanks, and looking forward to meeting you,
    Judith Muse
