|Here are a few grapes from early in the summer. Usually you would harvest them in early fall, but when I was at the garden today, they were all gone. I'm hoping someone had a yummy snack.|
|Ahh...the fruits of our labor. Everything here is edible and would make a really tasty salad--kale (1st graders planted), nasturtiums (they come back every year), and a variety of tomatoes. Look at all the different colors!|
|This picture was taken in July.|
Look at all the green leaves!
|This was taken a few days ago. Those leaves are calling it quits and sending all the good nutrients to the pumpkins.|
|You know what else grows really well? Weeds. Thistles. Really pokey, prickly weeds that are a bear to pull out. You need some serious gloves when you let them go this long.|
|On a brighter, much sunnier note, sunflowers.|
What a perfect way to welcome kids back to McKinley for another great year.
