We've been doing a lot of planting for the CSA, although the early stuff is quite a bit behind given all of the rain we've had. We've talked with a couple of others gardners, and most of us are running about 3 weeks behind what the normal growing season is. We've put in some corn, planted more lettuce, and planted the first round of green beans.

We also built a bit of a greenhouse structure over two of the beds in order to help with production for the tomatoes and peppers. The latter often suffer a lot out here, given all of the wind we have coming through the Van Duzer corridor from the coast. The tomatoes just need heat!

Hannah, Miriam and our friend Kristy helped us put up the greenhouse. We've also had Beth and Erik over several times working on the the garden, and that has been a big help. Below are some pictures of what we've been up to!
