FInal Post!

So now that the CSA project finished up, The Dustbowlers took to the field to collect their remaining bounty. We had many green tomatoes on the vine along with enough heads of lettuce to feed a small army. One of our members took the lettuce and made a delicious salad accompanied by some of the green tomatoes, slightly seared, for an excellent dish. Another member took many of the green tomatoes and made fried green tomatoes, a Southern dish which goes well as an appetizer for a big party or it's own whole meal! But more than just devouring the produce, the Dustbowlers took home new information and techniques to help them grow vegetables in the future more efficiently and in the least environmentally damaging way. Happy Holidays!

Farm Progress

There's been some good progress in the farm for the Dustbowlers. We've gotten good progress with our lettuce and our tomatos. We also got around to mulching the lot with hay once again to take care of any weeds.

We'll be posting our media project shortly, we decided to make a short PSA encouraging people to eat their fruits and vegetables everyday.
