As of this week, the chicks have been on the farm for a full month! It has been amazing to watch their wings and bodies develop, as well as see their behaviors becoming increasingly bold and independent. They have now moved out into the whole brooder house and no longer have a need for their heat lamps. Their tiny chirps are becoming more pronounced, and they are showing a desire to take flight and roost.
Over the last two days, the crew has taken advantage of the sun and dug a total of five beds in Grace and Lehua Garden. We planted collards, Asian greens, and cilantro. We had a big harvest today, so the fridge is packed extra full of delicious produce! I’m particularly excited that we’re starting to harvest our okra plants. I’m predicting some gumbo in our near future:)
In the Community Fridge we have . . .
Arugula (extra spicy)
