Here are some pictures of the work that we have been doing at E. 116 St. We are waiting for a delivery of topsoil to come and then we will do actual work in the planting areas. Hopefully we will have some cool weather crops and ornamental flowers in the Earth in time for the fall.

We continue to harvest the usual leafy greens, tomatoes and other plants we have had consistent success with the past few years. We planted ginger mint, lavender thyme and are looking for a place to plant an aloe vera plant that Natalie purchased from the Union Square Farmer's Market. Work also continues at the new site on E. 116 St. We have built and assembled most of the lattices and frames that will be affixed to the fence. In a tragedy, during the few days of 95+ degree weather the worms in Rabbi Stacey's wormbin melted and died. I had over 200 worms in there. So Rabbi Stacey has been taking worms from the work wormbin to repopulate his wormbin. Here are some pictures.
