Farm Day April Pictures

Hello farmers and supporters,

We had a great farm day today; thanks for making it out.  I enjoyed meeting some new people and also seeing old, good friends. It was a good mix of working hard and getting a chance to hang out, tell stories and check in with friends. 

We completed our check list including gluing decals to the coop, transplanting beans, peas and tomatoes and burying chicken wire underneath the sunflower seeds. 

Check out some of our pictures:
