Another busy week is coming to a close. The weather has been beautiful, and the cicadas have been shedding their skin in the forests by the thousands. Throughout the week, we kept working on the same tasks as the week prior—trellising, watering and de-suckering the tomato plants, and weeding the onion patch. Claudia discovered a raised bed with self-sowed garlic, so we also weeded that patch as well. Cassandra, Justin, and Claudia started mulching the section of the onion patch, which has been weeded, which will likely continue into next week.
Claudia and Brad cleaned out the duck pen and attempted to patch several holes in the fence through which the ducks were escaping. Denny is currently setting up an electric fence around the duck pen as an extra safety measure to ensure the ducks do not escape. For those of you who saw the baby ducklings in the spring a few days after they hatched, they are now growing into their teenage years! Much fun ahead.
