How many farm hands does it take

to get the work done? Many! Thanks to our terrific farm crew and volunteers from the National Park Service and Cape Ann Youth Corp!

Thirty youth from the National Park Service and TTOR’s Cape Ann Youth Corp came to Moraine Farm yesterday to lend a hand. The farm was a buzz of activity with volunteers and farm crew tending to the crops. Our seed garlic was clipped and boxed up to wait for November planting. Flowers and potatoes were weeded. Shallots harvested and laid out to cure in the red barn. Shade cloth was put over the big greenhouse in preparation for the upcoming onion harvest. Beds were fertilized, tilled and planted to fall crops of carrots, kohlrabi, kale and escarole. Winter squash was irrigated. Carrots and scallions hoed. Farm photographer Paula V captured the day in photos.
