We were blessed this past weekend with beautiful weather, incredibly hardworking and wonderful friends & great food. It was our 3rd Annual May Long Planting Weekend. This is the weekend where we move our tomato, eggplant & pepper grow op from our basement out to the fields. Year 1 was just us in a tent, last year it was a few friends helping us at the Free farm and this year we had 10 people! all pitching in to help get the job done. We got about 1100 plants in the ground, everything already in the ground weeded, and a whole bunch more seeds in the ground. We even had a little rain after everyone left which should really help everything get established. Such a great weekend.
They say it takes a village to raise a child but it also takes a village to raise a farm or any project of this scale. We are forever grateful to those of you who came out this weekend, to those of you who come out to help all summer and to those of you who support us by buying our produce, telling your friends and for being as passionate as us about what we are doing. We cannot even put to words how powerful your support is. Thank you. Each and every one of you. Here are a few pics of the weekend.
