Grab your gloves and your favorite weeding tool and come on down to the farm for some weeding and socializing. Come when you can, leave when you must.
Anything you can do will enhance the health of our farm this year and for years to come.
How? you might ask.
Every grass or wild amaranth or velvet leaf that flowers and goes to seed adds to the seed bank in the soil. These seeds will germinate next year or in the years after. They’ll compete with our food crops for nutrients, water, and sunlight. They will provide habitat for harmful insects and disease.
So, come pull them out tomorrow! (or whenever else you can make it – the next week or so is critical!)
