This last week has been hectic and eventful. Our main goal has been to get all of the gardens to full production mode and we are most of the way there! This process entails clearing beds covered with weeds (and those ungodly oregano plants), broad forking the soil (which mixes and aerates it), adding compost and then raking the beds.

However, we have planted beans are are on our way to perhaps planting another squash, zucchini patch. Lucy and I, (yes it is Josh writing, the mystery is solved) met with two of our high school interns (I am feeling pretty good about being an intern with interns) and they seem ready to get going. Back on the home front, we just placed an order for blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry plants, as well as asparagus crowns and rhubarb seeds. We are still looking for some grape vines. Williams growers, get ready for a new dimension to the garden: fruit!! Now, as the immediate planting gets completed we shall begin to look ahead to bigger plans that can be accomplished this summer. Stay tuned.
