From email: Saturday’s Byrd House Farmlet work day happened with the assistance of Patty, Kerry & the Boy Scouts from Fifth Baptist Church, Marlene & Two Grown Men and they really made a dent in the remaining compost, watered copiously and planted along the bamboo trellis/barrier – then they ate pizza and slid home.

Saturday’s Byrd House Farmlet work day happened with the assistance of Patty, Kerry & the Boy Scouts from Fifth Baptist Church, Marlene & Two Grown Men and they really made a dent in the remaining compost, watered copiously and planted along the bamboo trellis/barrier – then they ate pizza and slid home. Check out the slideshow – Patty’s pictures make you feel like you were there!
Cooking with a Turkish Man – Our own Evrim Dogu (silent G) spends summers in his family’s native southeastern region of Turkey and brings a real love for people and food to a kitchen. We made bread with a pillow and hot tiles and a spread of savory littles dishes to feed a small regiment of starving foodies. Many of his ingredients came from our own farmers including fresh fava beans from CityGarden and EVERYTHING was incredibly delicious. Encore Evrim, please, Encore!
Last week our Early Childhood kids made picture labels for the children’s gardens and beds are being made for the 3 Sisters and Straw-bale gardens… And we checked on the worms – those that didn’t run off to join the circus are writhing and thriving under the cool, broad shade of Richmond’s most beautiful Mulberry tree.
This Tuesday we’re all back at Byrd House Market – vendors, shoppers, manager, librarian, volunteers, staff, truck drivers and passersby … After several days of bright, clear weather we can once again expect a tenuous Tuesday – possible thunderstorms. So hopefully they’ll frame our market day rather than fill it. Singer/guitar-player Micah returns from performances last season to sing and play for us again, Krissey Dorwin takes over as L’Artiste de Peintre des Visages (Face Painting Artist). Bid many thanks to Nandi Shabazz for stepping in to face paint last week and cheer her so she returns in the fall (yeay yeay yeay).
And as always, visit byrdhousemarket.blogspot.com for up to date information about our vendors’ offering each week and all the goings-on at William Byrd Community House.
Staying tuned… Ana
