Spring is in full bloom!

Today was the first day or STARworks Garden CSA first session which runs from the beginning of May through the end of July.
Asian greens, lettuce, kale and cool weather herbs are available for a few weeks. Hopefully soon we can pull the first beets - they are looking great right now.

The week before last (last week was a SPring Break for Montgomery county kids) we had 2 first grade classes from Star Elementary in the garden, planting seeds, and painting labels to take home for their own little garden patches.

Everybody had a good time, and will be back this week, to draw, paint and write a story about plants and bugs and growing good things!
Below is a picture of a bed that 3'rd graders planted 3 years ago - the poppies they planted have settled in well, and come back every year!
