In what is certainly the most awesome thing that has ever been done for us, an alum is throwing a party in Philly to get our chickens project off the ground.
Here are the details:

I’m so excited.
Also, Halloween gardening, in spite of the rain, was very successful. We are getting though the seemingly daunting task of planting 1/3 of the garden with garlic and cleaning and cover cropping the rest with a slow but determined pace. Whenever I stop by I’m sure to grab some of our sugar peas and raspberries (shouldn’t we cut those back now?), which are the most delicious that I’ve ever had (no jk). We are also successfully distributing the kale and lettuce to our peers and enjoying the end of the epically spicy heirloom fish peppers.
