Farm Update

By Javert B

Last Thursday Katie gave me and my co-worker Alexis a tour of this years MAP farm and had us make a map of it. Below is a rough sketch of said map.

Of the plants pictured on the map, we've harvested green beans and okra. These were also a lot of onions and leafy vegetables ripening.

On Wednesday Alexis and I also watered Big Winter lot. This is a tedious job in and of itself. The field takes more than 30 gallons of water, which must be hauled out of the nearby cistern one bucket at a time. The water must then be carefully poured into watering cans, each of which waters about half a row of plants. Despite the tedium, watering was still fun since the water kept me cool in the high heat and humidity of this summer.
