Our work cycles at the farm are set by the seasons, as they have been for years. This seasonal constancy is a source of purpose and peace.
Now is the time when we wind down the vegetable harvest and prepare the fields for planting cover crops before the start of the rainy season. During the Summer, the cover crops will grow. Once mature, we will mow them and disk them back to the earth, to nourish the soil. Fulfilling their purpose, they will contribute organic matter and nutrients, so that next season’s vegetable crops will flourish.
