River Road Gardens
The biodynamic farm is a classroom at Tucson Waldorf School
Things are changing by the moment in the garden. The sunflowers that once sheltered the tomatoes are now feeding the chickens while others remain with bowed heads over the peppers. We had an abundant potato harvest this summer with a yield of 800 pounds! We (the gardeners) are busy at work transitioning beds for fall planting. The pumpkin patch is growing and we anticipate another pumpkin harvest in a couple short months. All of the students have now returned and we look forward to greeting their bright faces each week in the garden.
Enjoy the food and the family,
Farmers Jon and Emily and crew
