This summer the garden was extremely bountiful and we left all plants go to see to collect and use those seeds for next year
Of course we started the day with the Hello Kitty tattoo tradition. It gives you power!
Ella really like it.
Beautiful group of helpers
That was the wall of sunflowers that needed to be removed
Marylin did an outstanding job
Look at her! mixing in the horse manure into the soils. We got this horse manure for free from the stables of Tilden park.
Saving the sun flower seeds before the squirrels and the birds take them all
There were a lot of seeds
More seed collection
The zome also needed some fixing
Rob came up with this beautiful looking connector to keep the panels in place
David finishing the outside pannels
Becky hard at work-she was sweating!
It was Andreas birthday so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to build the chicken crib and show it off
It was awesome to watch them build it
Rusty and Andreas worked for months on this design for a small, modular, easy to assemble, chicken crib for all urban gardens. Rob cut all the parts in his shop with the CNC bot.
It's like a chicken dance
Kids loved it
yes, it works for the kids
Chicks like it too
But now we had to test the real chickens
Giancarlo let us borrow his chickens for the test
Andreas got the most beautiful one
And it works!!!
They seem to like it
yeah they approve!
And it was great entertainment for the kids
Look at that- isn't it beautiful? this is truly the designer version of an urban farm.
Who else has a greenhouse that looks like a jewel and a designer chicken crib?

And as always there was a lot of chilling under the shade of the fruit trees. I love this garden and being able to share it with my friends
