It was a nice day to work in the garden!

Forest Class began preparing our garden plot to plant lettuce and popcorn! The kids learned that wire-grass is an evil plant and they were very dedicated in their efforts to eliminate its presence from the garden beds. We look forward to enjoying a nice salad bar later this spring. The popcorn will be ready next Fall. We are also planting a sour cherry tree.

Spreading the dirt to prepare for planting.

We found lots of grubs!

Discovering tiny creatures in the garden.

Oh, the wire grass! We will find you. 

Digging the hole for the sour cherry tree.
