Tommy and the gang just finished spreading some of the 21 tons of gravel we had delivered today. The new awning addition to the barn is looking better every day, and quickly becoming a pleasant place for the tractor to call home. 😊

The bats have been living behind our shutters all summer so as the weather gets cold we decided to give them a cozy home of their own built from scrap pieces of wood we had laying around so they had a better place to winter over the cold months ahead.

It's been awhile but were working on our native plant list for our nursery next year. Our milkweed this year did wonderfully and is currently planted all over Northern VA and DC, and at least ours here at the farm are covered in Monarch butterfly caterpillars.

Groundbreaking on the hegelkulture beds. It's a traditional german permaculture method that allows debris to biodegrade naturally underneath your crops to ensure rich soil for years to come.

We were so happy here to have Irene bring us some water, We are around 9 inches short and things have been suffering badly...1.25 inches fell, enough to contunue putting in the fall lettuce, cabbage, etc, plenty more food to grow, harvest and give away......

....I was explaining what we are doing here at Overlook and He replied "You are giving it away!!" Yes I said, "you have to give it away to keep it".
We are providing over a ton a month of fresh, healthy food to local folks who are in need, along with large shares of food to our members every week. But we do need help in keeping this going and to make it possible give more,
Think about it..........

More Raspberries than you can shake a stick at...Squash growing like something in a nightmare...Beans on every stem....Tomatoes heavy on the vine......Must be summer..... We are bountiful out here, providing food for members and for those in need, but we do need support to keep this thing growing.
