At The Farm…

 

We are mulching squash and tomato beds and weeding garlic and other crops.

 

We are planting the last of our seedlings (pumpkins and butternut squash) and beans.

We are enjoying our new picnic table made from lumber saved from a Cypress tree that came down up near Donahue Hall last year.

 

We are welcoming our partners at the David Jon Louison Family Life Center of the Old Colony YMCA into the fields on Friday morning.

 

We are harvesting zucchini, summer squash, bunching onions, basil, Kaboku cabbage, bok choy, lettuce, kohlrabi, kale, chard, beets, sugar snap peas, and our first cucumbers from the hoophouse.

So many greens! Emily and Katie wash and pack our veggies for our partners.

 

In the Community…

 

We are donating these veggies to our partners and offering them and a couple of additions from Langwater Farm (red bunching onions and beets – purchased through a grant from the Vela Foundation) at the Mobile Market.

 

We hosted our second Mobile Market day at the Brockton Neighborhood Health Center (63 Main St. from 3:30pm – 4:45pm) and the Trinity Baptist Church Parking lot  (1367 Main St. from 5:00pm – 6:30pm).  It was a great success!

Flowers are exploding - loving the sun and our drip irrigation.
