Daffodils and Crocuses Planted

Almost all of our classes have planted either daffodils or crocuses around the trees on the hill by the playground.  The rest will plant them in January.  Our beautiful spring flowers will help attract beneficial insects to our garden.

Cleaning Up the Garden

With the hot weather some plants have suffered and some have flourished.  Cool weather plants like the peas, arugula and pac choi are finished.  The carrots are doing well and the zucchini are going crazy!! As I was cleaning out the beds I found this huge radish!!  It tasted yummy in my summer salad!
