Aloha!

The Community Fridge is brimming with fresh veggies and herbs after a bountiful harvest today! We are thrilled to soak in some sunshine around here after the seemingly endless bout of rain we had. No more flooded fields, just happy faces and a few freshly dug beds:) We planted arugula and cilantro today and finished up mulching in the rest of the turmeric field- all tucked in! We said goodbye to our muscovy ducks this past week, as they left for a new home on the west side where they will have access to even more room to roam and a full pond. They have brought character, diversity and lots of cuteness to the farm, for which we are very grateful. We are happy to once again have full use of our chicken paddocks for our hens, and so glad to know that the ducks will have a habitat that better supports their need to exhibit natural behaviors and maintain health and hygiene. Before they left we got to have a week with their sweet little ducklings, born on Mothers Day!

When there are rivers in the rows, we try to stay out of the fields, so as to not cause damage to the soil.
