Summer has unofficially arrived and with it the characteristic heat! During Garden Club in the summer we maximize our time in the shade and the sun and we make sure to keep plenty of water on hand. Yesterday several of the girls in Garden Club started talking about how grateful they were for ICE water and how lucky we are to have it! In my humble opinion, this is one of the most brilliant things children can remind us of--how to notice and take pleasure in the simple things. And there are so many simple triumphs and marvels in our garden everyday.
We knew our plants were THIRSTY, too, so we spend most of the day watering and also carefully hand weeding some of the beds. We wanted to update you on the growth of our beautiful pumpkin plant which is really thriving and has a bunch of buds that will eventually turn into pumpkins! The excitement continues out in the garden, come join us one of these days!
