Once a week through the month of August several families gathered at Thistle Whistle farm to work in the Sauce Plot. We weeded onions, melons, raspberries, tomatoes, and more tomatoes! Along with weeding we plucked several pounds of tomato horn worms off of our plants. It was interesting to see the children’s (and parent’s) reaction to these beastie insects. They ranged in color from bright green to near-black. Our interns did a fabulous job feeding our weeders delicious farm grown food. Thank you Wesley and Margaret!
