We were happy to see a good number of new volunteers out this year, as we have extra work with the new hoop house.
Spring was late and it has been cool, so things are a bit slow but generally all has come up well.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen evidence of some root maggot on the cabbages again, despite our soapy water and landscape paper strategy. We planted some extra for the little critters, but will not be happy if they take more than their share.
We’ve also squished some potato beetles and are watching nervously to see how bad they get. Our new volunteers may get some interesting tasks assigned in the coming weeks.
Here’s some of our activity this month, including a couple of action videos.
