It looks like we have finally turned the corner to spring on a beautiful Saturday in the mountains! Last week, we had sleet and a winter weather advisory…in April! We all have spring fever and can’t wait for camp to start. Tom and Tim have been out working on a new raised bed garden at the farm. Last year, our garden was a last minute affair, and poorly positioned on the slope between the pond and the building below it that you see in the background.
Any rains would wash through it, and leave a mess to clean up. The solution? Four 8×16′ raised beds with some of the richest, blackest dirt you can imagine. We will line the paths with brown river gravel, and put a picket fence around the entire garden to keep the munching deer from eating our salads! All you green thumbed girls out there…sign up for the farm activity!
