Our garden is growing...

Our plants are enjoying the mix of sunny and rainy weather we've been seeing lately.

So far we've sown corn, spinach, arugula, radish, lettuces, beans, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, herbs, pumpkins, peppers, broccoli, collards, chard, cabbage, kale, bok choy, beets, carrots and kohl rabbi.

We've started composting this season using this great rotating composting unit from our friends at Envirocycle.  We are adding equal parts "green" (vegetable, fruit and garden scraps) and "brown" (cardboard, dry leaves and twigs).

The greens add carbon, and the browns contribute nitrogen to the mix.  The materials break down to create a super nutrient-rich mixture we can add to our garden beds.
