From early morning till late afternoon students gathered the last remnants of fresh vegies to share with friends and families. The wash station was a-bustle with wonder and awe at the bounty still to be had. The refrigerators were overflowing with the unending supply of produce.
Alas, the time had come to till the plots under. All unplucked harvest would have to be buried and churned into the gluttonous, awaiting soil (microbes must be fed!). Rototillers roared for hours as cohort 4 took turns pushing and pulling the voracious monsters up and down the hillside, surmounting obstacles in their paths and battling hungry cranes.
Cover crop seeds were then carefully weighed after mathematical calculation and figuring. Seeds were then gently splayed on the bare soil and again tilled or raked into their benevolent womb. The new plots received their first baptismal showering and it was time to Celebrate and Graduate!
