Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Rye

Wednesday’s workday was spent trying to tame the Gilmer garden. Our primary task was to remove weeds and cover crops. Rye planted as a cover crop the winter before last was bound and determined to take over the garden yet again, but in the end we triumphed! (For now). Check out this bunch:

Everything is gonna be all rye...

Spring planting has begun! Last Friday we planted carrots, parsnips, radishes, fennel and golden beets in the main garden space. We even used some compost tea from our very own worm bin to fertilize the beds we planted. More planting to come!
