Hi everyone! This is Kate Lainhart and I am one of the Green Edge farmers. I have been at Green Edge for 2 years and I love it! I’m a
This past Thursday was an exciting and productive day. The day started out with weeding the sweet potato patch. These plants were shipped from Delvin Farm, in
The last job of the day was to move the mushroom blocks to the compost pile. Our wonderful mushrooms are grown in a climate controlled room on compressed sawdust blocks. The mushroom mycelium is mixed with the sawdust to create the mushrooms. One sawdust brick will only produce mushroom flushes 3-6 times. Fortunately, composted mushroom blocks make fantastic potting soil. The mushroom blocks get piled up outside of the mushroom house, but the compost pile is down the hill on the other side of the farm. This means that the farm truck doubles as a mushroom block dump truck. As I was loading the truck with the blocks, I found a snake! The milk snake and her eggs were keeping cool underneath the block pile. I guess it is that time of year.
I have had such a wonderful time growing and packing your food over the past 2 years. Thanks so much for supporting me and the farm. We couldn’t do it without you! Please come to the OPEN FARM on July 27 so I can meet all of you.
Thanks again and best of wishes,
