Tomorrow we’ll be planting.

Wednesday we got ready: spread mounds of compost, dug in alfalfa meal, pulled out old plants and bok choi that had bolted, and of course, we weeded. We will always be weeding.

We have a fantastic crew of volunteers, including intern Tommy, Teshome, Bill, Andrew, Meredith, Julie and Juliana.

Here is what is growing: cherry tomatoes, okra, swiss chard, cabbage, broccoli, lettuces, radishes, beets, fennel, cilantro, parsley, tomatillos, and potatoes. We are still watching thyme, caraway, and strawberries left over from last year.

We are overwhelmed with mint.

Soon, we’ll all eat.
