This just in! The 2nd Grade will be hosting a Garden Party at 5:30pm tomorrow. It’s a potluck! So come do some weeding and get some vegetables for July 4th weekend! The garden is popping. Just yesterday I went home with a big bag full of greens. There are a ton of broccoli leaves; and if you haven’t tried them, you should — they’re packed with more vitamin A than the florets.
In other news, over the last couple of weeks, I’ve set up an automatic watering system for the garden and willow tunnel, and built a wine cap mushroom grove out of the wood chips generated from building the new playhouse! The students will have a bounty of gourmet mushrooms to harvest come fall! I’ll post pictures soon. Also, in the next few weeks we will be building another stone wall for the garden pathway…more info to come.
I’ll be around tomorrow at 3pm (7/3). There are wondrous things going on in the garden – so bring your child out and get dirty!
Here are some photos of what’s happening! Enjoy…
