This is what shoveling 10 yards of beautiful, rich soil looks like. What you can’t see is that this levee is almost as deep as it is wide- 10 yards is a lot! And it was a perfect day to do this. Warm sun in the morning turning into cooling fog at times as we started to shovel in earnest. Then, just as we were starting to worry the pile was regenerating itself, the calvary came in and got it all down into the garden. We were even able to fill our three new raised beds.
Of course, now all we can think about is planting, even as we head into winter. The garden has already become a great place to be again.
We are catching up and hope to share a few pictures from the Long Table Dinner, which was another success! We are so proud of our students and thankful to all of our friends who came out or helped. In the meantime you might find us out here digging away- Happy Quarter 2!
