"A light wind swept over the corn, and all nature laughed in the sunshine."
It's been breezy, but it's perfect for how hot the sun has been getting. Maybe the wind will push in some rain. Some beds are a little more fruitful than others, but they're getting there. Students have been able to eat some Sugar Snap Peas and Spinach. Turnips are ready to come up and have another harvest. Some of the sunflowers are as big as our second graders and blooming! The Three Sisters are getting so big they're starting to crowd out each other, so we've have to do some transplanting. We've added another addition to our herb garden: cilantro. There was a tomato ripe enough to eat, so we ate it! It was mmmmm good.
Today, we received a milkweed plant from Ms. Garcia's Pre-K class. It has a caterpillar transitioning into a Monarch Butterfly! As you can see the cocoon is beautifully decorated with a golden color. Hopefully he won't get blown away and we'll have a beautiful butterfly by the end of next week!
