Turtle Sighting & A Lesson On Hoophouses

On Thursday, while weeding the community garden and preparing for our marketing workshop, we discovered a painted turtle wandering around in the grass! This is the first time either Adrienne or I had actually seen the namesake animal in the garden, so we were both pretty excited.

In addition, I paid a visit to the Marti’s  farm on Sunday to get hands-on experience with putting plastic up on their new hoophouse. I’ve helped a bit on some of the carpentry on this project, so it was really satisfying to see it completed. Plus, it was good practice for when we hopefully get to build our own hoophouse.
