Eating Weeds

16_528_fj_david David spent a lot of time weed-eating this week.

The pine needle bales are for mulching the strawberry patch. The strawberries have been very prolific this season and David has been picking them everyday.

He also finished staking all the tomato plants that are in the ground and I tied them to their stake.

Tunnel C

We had our first groundhog attack this week.

The plastic on tunnel C is past its prime and has many holes. Instead of removing all of it we cut off its top and left the sides as a groundhog barrier. We removed the plastic from tunnel A and stored it. Then we used the top from tunnel C as a barrier around A.

David harvested the last of the peas in tunnel C and started to prepare it for his next rotation of beans. He also worked up one of our small raised beds for beans as well.
