Dartmouth senior Monica Erives is getting a lesson in Gardening Frustrations 101.
One of our main activities today has been trying to find a woodchuck that ate all of our broccoli.
She’s standing next to the row of nibbled vegetables at the Dartmouth Organic Farm. Dressed in jeans, a sturdy brown corduroy jacket, and a forest green baseball cap, Erives looks like a farming veteran. But she’s a newbie.
I grew up in a suburb in the Los Angeles county area, and so this was entirely new to me.
