Growing Season at Acorn and Glomus

by Raven Glomus

It’s full into the farm season and this weeks roundup of stuff from our Facebook feed focuses on what’s growing at Acorn Community and Glomus Commune:

First, Acorn gets a lot of early lettuce and donates to their local food bank:

And then, on Instagram, someone at Acorn Community is bragging that their whole breakfast (vegetables and eggs) comes right from their own farm.

Meanwhile, here at Glomus, here’s Cicada of East Brook Community Farm (our communal business) bringing out the greens and veggies for our first weekly CSA of 2021. Farming is our business, and it’s a lot of work, but this is the payoff.

Finally, farm work is not just about vegetables. Here are some pictures of the cute little goslings that we are raising at Glomus:

Two Bats at East Wind

Warning: this is a strange video. As Sumner says, it’s about two bats doing… something. Fighting? Sex? There’s a bunch of footage (including a brief cameo by a peeper frog) and a lot of speculation. There’s a lot of life at the rural communes and much of it nonhuman. Sumner has been documenting it at East Wind. (Also, language warning. Folks at the communes pretty much say what they are thinking and not always in the most polite manner. Still, nothing you couldn’t hear in the cities if you listen.)
