Spring is here!

It has been another wonderful week at Lavender Lane. We've received some much-needed rain, and the plants are grateful. The smell of chocolate greets us in the front yard from a cocoa shell mulch we've put down in the herb and flower beds. We have also planted our very own "lavender lane" along the driveway, so drive and walk carefully around these delicate, new plants. Many new flowers adorn the garden. These will hopefully attract many beautiful and beneficial insects. We also had another field trip this week. Class 2 from Spring Garden Waldorf School helped us prepare and plant a bed of watermelons. Thank you, Class 2!

Last Sunday was the May work day, and we had a great turnout. We really accomplished a lot from weeding in the garden to cleaning in the chicken coop and much, much more. So thank you to all!

Weekly Update

We've all been very busy this week at the farm. Preparations for this month's work day have been made, not to mention for our May Festival. And of course, we've been planting collards, strawberries, and a large variety of heirloom tomatoes and peppers in the fields. We have a new perennial area in hopes of attracting birds and beneficial insects, and we have added a star-shaped culinary herb garden. Class one and Class two from Spring Garden Waldorf School visited the farm this week and helped us plant Spot's Pumpkin Patch in the front yard! Class one prepared the biodynamic preparation for the patch, while class two planted the seeds. Thanks for your help, kids!

We will try to update this blog every week, so check back to see what else is happening on the farm!
