    "Pick Your Own Veggies" Days

    What would the soil be like at Bellwether Farm? That was the question I asked myself all winter while I waited for the snow to melt and reveal the hidden earth beneath it. I’d seen the soil test and knew it needed a lot of love and care, namely in the form of organic matter (e.g. compost). However, it’s really hard to know how things are going to grow until you’ve had a year of experience on a particular piece of land. Three months in, with the help of lots of volunteers and a giant mountain of compost, I’m happy to say we have an abundance of vegetables in this inaugural farm season at Bellwether Farm!
