Jim’s first priority was to make sure all the blackberry roots were gone. He’s fought that war before. Then he used the mower and weedeater to take the weeds down to ground level. Meanwhile, I watered our original plot and picking yet another bagful of zucchini. Then I started in on mowing the paths which counts toward our community hour commitment.

The first five load of mushroom manure went on #99. We will let it sit on top for a week to help kill off the weeds and then rototill it in.

Mushroom Manure

We are grateful for the huge pile of mushroom manure that has been donated for our use.
