Winter Crop Planting This Weekend!

Just when you thought you were eating your last community grown vegetable…

This weekend we will be doing a massive winter crop planting in the community beds.  A new member, Joe Robitaille, a farm transplant to the city, has ordered a bunch of new seeds for winter cover crops and harvesting. Some things to get excited about: hairy vetch and rye, legumes and clover, decorative grasses, mizuna greens, hearty romaine, spinach, arugula, miner’s lettuce, sorrel and more.

The Plan

Saturday, 23rd, 10am: Prep community plot beds. Come help turn the soil and spread compost.

Sunday, 24th, 9am: Sowing. Come help sow seeds and learn a few things about cold season growing from Joe!

Last Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day for the Garden Work day as evidenced in the photos below:
