I hope you have all had a great summer and are ready for an amazing year!
Over the summer the garden has been busy although it was also left to its own devices for a few weeks. While you were away we have had many harvest days, taking home bagfuls of tomatoes, eggplant, okra, zucchini, basil, cilantro, onions, chilli peppers, bell peppers and strawberries! The okra and eggplants are still healthy and producing lots of fruits!
With all of the rain, the garden has also been home to a variety of critters, ranging from butterflies, spiders, caterpillars and even frogs!
The Eagle Scout candidates that had projects planned for the summer are almost done implementing their wonderful projects. As you walk out to the garden you will notice a lovely new pathway, a new compost and rain collection bin, and soon a new sensory bed that will be raised for easier wheelchair access!
We have lots of exciting adventures planned for our outdoor laboratory. We will be planting, calculating, tracking, hypothesizing and even painting art projects, so bring your creativity and your energy and we look forward to seeing you in the garden!
As always, I welcome your feedback, ideas, or just love hearing from you!
