The warm weather has finally arrived and things around the gardens have picked up in earnest. We’ve been planting, weeding, and setting up irrigation for the last three weeks and have nearly completed our early season planting. Due to drought and watering restrictions in Denver we’ve been forced to install and/or convert more drip systems this season. We also are working in 19 yards this year, compared to 15 last year. We’re excited about the possibilities, even though the season has been pushed back slightly due to cold, wet (snow!) weather in April.
Our seasonal interns have both now arrived. I’ve asked them both to write up a short autobiography so you can get to know them a bit. Until then, here is a picture taken after completing our last irrigation installation on Friday.
We’ve also had tremendous support on volunteer Saturdays this season. We’ve had help from former WWOOFers, our MeetUp Group, and churches. Here are just a few shots of them hard at work.
The next few weeks will be busy with fertilizing, pest control, and getting ready for our first big harvest which will happen (hopefully) in three weeks.
