The big pile of manure sitting at the farm was provided by Carole Bear and her cows; thanks Carole! Brian Lauer of Lauer Excavating hauled it for us and Gary Rippee loaded it into Brian's dump truck. What a great community we have!
The manure will be spread this week, weather permitting. Other plans this week: a group of Young Men from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is coming to till all the beds on Wednesday evening. If you don't want your bed tilled, let me know ASAP! Kids from A New Journey Middle School are coming on Thursday to replace the seals in our new irrigation pipe and a group from Medical Lake is coming to have a look at our operation and discuss starting their own Farm to School Program. Plans are being made with Eldon, Dan and a farmer from Rockford for our Wheat project this year. It is going to be much bigger and will be incorporated into lots of areas of our schools. Now if it would just quit snowing, we might be able to get the ground to warm up so we can plant!
Enjoy the article. It is a great one (link is above)!
See you at the garden!
