A few weeks ago we held a workshop "Seed to Flower" with Star Elementary first graders. 43 kids total - together in the garden! We managed well, working in two groups - planting seeds and painting garden labels that the kids could take home with a seed packet.
All the seeds have germinated and the sunflowers and zinnias are growing well! Huge thanks goes out to my helpers: Anna, Rhonda and Heidy! Also to the Star Elementary first graders and their teachers!
The garden annex has already given us a crop of beets and potatoes.
Onions and garlic need more time, but we should get another crop of potatoes next week. Deer got in the garden on day and chomped on winter squashes and sweet potatoes, but I have since put more fishing line on the posts - so keep your fingers crossed that they will stay out from now on!
Beautiful moments from the garden:
I'd like to also say THANK YOU to Eddie and Angela, who's garden has supplied the CSA with lettuce for last few weeks!
There is no doubt - summer is here!
