Dear Farm Journal,
Field E is officially in operation, well part of it. Rufus has been working on establishing this field since I came to the farm. He rented equipment and terraced the hillside near the pack shed, and has been working on adding compost to the terraces, well one terrace is what we have so far…until we make more compost. Despite the fact that this field was supposed to be planted a month ago, it is exciting to see the project come to partial fruition. We add lime, cover it with black plastic, because we are pretty certain it is thick with weeds, and plant broccoli, brussels sprouts, and fennel…all the vegetables little children fear, and probably a good amount of adults. Grow babies, grow.
