The top lots are mulched!

More photo/video content to follow… we’ve got some great footage for our first Kickstarter video!  Don, Billy, and I got a lot of work done yesterday (Saturday) distributing our donated mulch (thanks, Asplundh) on the top lots around the raised beds and greenhouse.  Kenny did a ton of work building up the retaining wall beneath the natural wood railing at the west end of the top lots.  The watermelons, among other things, are looking beautiful! I also cleaned up and weeded the area around our beehive so it’s not so ugly and difficult to get to.  We’ve got around 6 weeks left in our growing season, and we’d really like the Ash Street Garden to look its best as the foliage starts to turn bright colors and we’re harvesting the last crops of fall.

Until I get some time to upload video from the regular video camera, here’s one I shot from my phone yesterday as we worked on the top lots.

Kickstarter accepted our project!!!

I got an email from them today: they like our project, and we’re in!  They had some suggestions for us, and they definitely want a video.  After our discussion last night, I’m sure we can make one that will blow them away!  Also, they had some ideas about our “rewards”.  Check out his blog link they sent me and start brainstorming.  BTW, they also said that we don’t have a set date to start the fundraiser, so we can take our time and do it right!
