To keep the end wall plastic down, we built beds on the backs of the hoops houses and planted baby watermelons. Here are the watermelons coming up!
We had some FarmCorps family members come to visit the HDFI farm and lend a helping hand.
With extra hands around for the summer, we are getting a ton accomplished! Here FarmCorps members are digging additional outdoor beds for even more veggie production.
Once established in the hoop house, our cucumbers are taking off. Some are already 3 feet tall!
They might not look like anything special now, but we just planted 11 grape vines on the south side of our wash house. The cardboard covering are to help encourage the vines to grow upwards toward the light and to protect from any pests.
The bees are buzzing in our flowering pollinator beds.
Old tables and new pallet benches are on the way for sitting space in our central garden area.
Container planting is an excellent way to grow food in a greenhouse. Here we are setting up trellising for a variety of tomatoes to be grown next to our hydroponic lettuce.
We’ve made a five bin composting system to divide compost piles into finished stages – with almost all with repurposed materials.
Carrot seeds seem to be bird’s favorite snack around here, after several replanting efforts we have some good looking carrot beds.
