Sprouts!!!

I was just watering all of the seeds I started and I already have four things sprouting.  Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, and broccoli.  Now I’m just hoping that the warm weather sticks around so I can get the garden ready to plant.  I need to get the rest of the railroad ties out of the garden, lay out where I’m going to put the beds, move some dirt and compost, and finish cleaning up.

In other news I went to the Enright Eco Village today.  They offered me the job as a farm intern so I will be working with them this year to grow food for their CSA.  There may be an opportunity to learn bee keeping as well which I am excited about.  I also met the other intern.  She will be working there about full time through the summer.  We had dinner at the house of a woman who lives in the Eco Village, along with the founder of the Village, the supervisor of the CSA (who I knew from college) and her fiancé.  I learned a lot about the village and the residents tonight.

Clocks spring forward tonight and I’m already up later than usual, so I should be off to bed.

Until next time
