The summer so far at the Student Farm is going fantastic! I have been able to learn so much in such a little time it is incredible! All of the interns are a pleasure to work with and we have been able to accomplish quite a bit! There have been some struggles with organization and time management for certain tasks but we have pulled through with the best of our ability. There are currently a plethora of tomatoes, peppers, and other greens planted in the past week which is great!
This picture above represents the key aspect of measuring the beds for nice and straight rows of vegetables! Keeping the Student Farm pristine all around is very important to me! It took quite a bit of heavy lifting and trial/error with the BCS tractor, but it is officially a pleasure to use now!
