My memories of the past couple of weeks are dominated by awesome trips around the Northwest- sorry bindweed, you'll always have a special place in my heart, but this post isn't about you today.
For the solstice, a small group of Songaians and interns made their way to Fremont (known by locals as the center of the universe) to experience the full glory of The Fremont Solstice Parade- complete with naked bicyclists, plenty of marching bands, lots of floats, and an assortment of people dressed in all sorts of interesting garb. A glorious day left us all quite exhausted and definitely in need of Steven's coffee the next day.
In between these trips was quite a bit of weeding and some harvesting of cherries and fava beans. Some trellis construction for tomatoes and a bit of work mulching a hügelkultur bed. The goats have also been doing a lot of work on their little blackberry patch.
