September 7th Garden Day!

We had a beautiful garden day today - perfect weather! We watered, weeded, checked out the compost, and harvested beans and tomatoes! Next time we may even be able to pick the carrots! See you then!

 The sunflowers are getting so large, they are starting to droop.

 This sunflower is just about ready to bloom!

 Rebecca, Hannah, and Sasha picking beans!
