In preparation for Saturday's plowing, students from EV High School and EV Middle School picked rocks, wood and trash out of the field all day Friday. They were all such good sports as fresh cow manure had been spread the day before! What a great day we had Saturday plowing the field. The Inland Empire Gas and Steam Buffs were so generous with their time and tractors to plow our field! With five tractors and plows the field was plowed in no time at all and the weather couldn't have been better. The farm could not exist without the wonderful service from the men in the tractor club. Thank you, Thank you! I even got in on some of the tractor fun by discing up our wheat field with the Massey Ferguson 135 that was bought last year with funds donated by Spokane Valley Kiwanis. Thanks to Eldon Jons for the tractor -driving lesson, I didn't run into anything important and the tractor is still functioning! Look for a story about Saturday in the Inlander.
All bed assignments have been made and there are still more plots available in the raised beds. Contact me to make a reservation. The beds will be tilled this week and planting can start as soon as you dare. The field plots will be ready by the beginning of May; I'll let you know when they are staked out and ready to be claimed. Again, if you desire to grow corn, you must get your corn seed from Reta at the High School's front desk.
Last but certainly not least a new raised bed for our Special Ed. kids is almost complete. Thanks to Debbie Strehlou, our district maintenance crew, Central Premix, Spokane Rock Product and Cook Forms the bed has been made out of concrete and is awaiting the wheelchair ramp that will be laid by Wm. Winkler Company. What a great community we have. You should have seen the kids putting their handprints and names in the wet concrete. What a special day for a really sweet group of kids.
If you have any questions about your bed or plot assignments, give me a call or shoot me an email! And please visit our facebook page for photos of all the recent happenings. I can't wait to see you all at the farm!
See you soon!
