Our loaner cows returned to keep the pasture grass in control. Fred Colvin/Colvin Ranch kindly lends us four steers for the summer months. Before they arrived, we re-worked the electric fence to fit our new garden area. In fact, it was a hardware kind of weekend. I learned how to put connectors and ends on t-tape which is what we use to water most of the crops. T-tape is like a very flat soaker hose. It comes on a roll and we just cut the length we need, lay it down next to the row, and hook it up to the small water lines running throughout the garden. But the biggest news was getting our first CSA boxes out to our subscribers. A little scary for our first time, but all boxes were picked up or delivered. On to next week!
