Update on 2010’s Projects

Well, like most things, everything we did took longer than we planned!

Fortunately, we got a lot of things on our 2010 project agenda done, the biggest accomplishments being construction of the outdoor kitchen and shower, making the backyard of the warehouse into garden beds, and building lots of paths and bridges. We inoculated about 150 shiitake logs, built another chicken coop, grew lots of plants, made a new compost bin, set up a trellis system for the hops, built a grey water system for the outdoor shower and sink, cleared most of WWOOF island and set up the dome, started growing oyster mushrooms indoors, amended lots soil, and acquired more land to grow vegetables on.

We did a lot, probably lots more than I can list here. The challenges were numerous, from squash bugs to losing our e-z-up during the tailgate market to torrential rain storms to an algae bloom in the pool, but we persevered. 🙂

Big thanks to everyone who had a part in our 2010 season. All the WWOOFers, the Emma Farms community, CSA members, friends, volunteers, mentors, and anyone else who had a part – it was a great year and we couldn’t have done it without you!

So, now that 2011 is upon us, it’s time to get planning for the upcoming season. May this year be even better!
