Week #2: Carrots, Lettuce, Radishes, Kale, Strawberries, Mullberries, Spring Onions, Green Garlic, and perhaps some Fava Beans

The weeds are growing strong, it seems they are growing as fast or faster than my food crops. My days are spent rotating through the gardening prioritizing where to weed and then weeding. I enjoy the solitude of weeding alone, I also enjoy weeding with others. It is amazing how fast we can knock down those weeds in a single morning with a grip of helpers. We knocked down weeds in 5-6 six beds the other day and I was IMPRESSED. Weeds are very time-consuming and a lot of folks ask why organic produce costs more. Weeds is one of the answers. Conventional farmers purchase sprays to knock down the weeds, but here at Sonoma Garden Park (Farm), we use good ole man power. Weeding is therapeutic too, good for the body and mind, so come and join me anytime!!
