The sun is out and my plants are soaking it up and leafing out! I built a cattle panel trellis and two raised beds out of corrugated metal roofing panel in my backyard, The whole set up was under $100 and will hopefully provide some yummy backyard groceries this summer. Right now in the beds I have lettuce, beans, basil, and cantaloupe growing. I'm excited to see how far up the cattle panel the plants will make it.
In the month of June, we composted 783 lbs of organic waste. I've been working at the Loveland and Montgomery Farmers Market and am starting to feel like I know what I'm doing. It's been a great way to practice my answers to common questions like "so...what do you do?" and "tell me how your system works." If you see me at the market, stop by and say hi!
