The ISU Student Organic Farm had a good learning year. This is the third year of the farm at its current location and much is happening. Our perennials are now fully established and include red raspberries, strawberries, asparagus, and rhubarb. The 10 surviving fruit trees in their third year of establishment should now begin bearing. The wet spring caused a slow start but we were able to plant a variety of vegetables in our 24, 4 ft × 150 ft vegetable beds. Beds contained beans, peas, tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, onions, various cucurbits, and various brassicas.
