Aloha!

It’s been a busy week on the farm, despite the heavy rains that we had early on. We’ve gotten many plants in the ground over the last few days, including turmeric, eggplant, carrots, beets, radishes, lettuces, lemongrass, and pineapple. Today, we were able to get our first harvest on our carrots and basil! We’ve also spent time weeding the fields and managing the perimeters of the gardens.
