I had the help of several of Mrs. S's students to plant some color in the garden today. There were some pansies and flowers they used for a recent art project (think Georgia O'Keefe) that desperately needed to be in the dirt and grow in the wild, not plastic pots. We also had a few colorful things to add--Mexican marigolds, which attract aphids, which are really eating up the newly-exposed kale and greens. Although maybe it's caterpillars doing the damage. I will have to post a picture for the experienced gardener to review.
The gardeners also planted sweet alyssum and nasturtiums because they are lovely, smell nice, and attract those important pollinators.
Mark your calendars!
The garden needs some serious clean up and attention. We will have a garden clean-up day
on Sunday, April 22nd.
Yes! Earth Day!
What better way to spend the day than tending
to our own, precious school garden.
Look for a flyer home this week with more details.
