Tuesday night we went to another MOFGA Apprentice Workshop, also on pests, and got a tour of Six Rivers Farm in Bowdoinham. It’s so great to see young farmers working creatively with the land and resources they have available to them.
Today we got so much stuff into the ground. Lots of little things that needed to get finished; rosemary, lavender, sunflowers, a few more zinnias, napa cabbage, extra summer squash and zuchinni, bell flowers, allysium, and tomatilloes.
We also started some work on landscaping the outhouses, which I will be excited to share new pictures of that project! Than we went over to the Snell Family Farm-a neighboring farm, and a got a farm tour over there! (http://www.snellfamilyfarm.com/) So, it’s been very busy, long days, and long educational nights! It is certainly summer! U-picks started today and it was crazy! It also coincided with an article in the Portland paper about organic u-pick, and guess who was listed in the article as an available farm…Broadturn! So that added to the newcomers! It’s great to share the warm delicious summery goodness!!!!
