Purple beans!

Our purple beans grew like crazy! We had so many that we harvested some yesterday. We'll soon have more - and tomatoes, too! Join us for the next Garden Day on August 8th where we will be harvesting, watering, weeding, and painting our own garden gnomes! 
See you then!

Thursday July 18th Garden Day!

We had so much gardening fun this morning! We harvested some peas, weeded a lot, and watered everything (several times!) We found a few interesting bugs and had a blast despite the heat.

 We found an aphid!

 We also spotted this beetle underneath a zucchini plant!

 Checking out the zucchini plants.

 Maxx found a whole bunch of blooming zinnias!

 Maxx did a wonderful job watering the garden!

 Chloe helped us pick a lot of weeds!

 We harvested some peas!

 Diana helped us water (the plants and the pavement!)

Can you spot the dragonfly that Maxx found?

We'll see you next time on Thursday, August 8th! We'll be doing a (really fun!) craft and lots of more gardening fun!

Come help us garden this Thursday, July 18th anytime between 10 and 11AM! We'll be harvesting, pulling weeds, watering, and looking around for cool bugs to identify! Kids 2 and up are welcome to come (little ones, please bring your grown-up with you - older kids can attend independently) anytime during the hour to help us out in the garden.
Please be sure to wear lots of sunscreen and a hat as well as your best gardening clothes-since we're watering and pulling weeds, it may get a little muddy! See you on Thursday!
