Friday, February 11th, 2011

This morning wasn't exactly the warm sunny weather people come to Florida for, but as for my first experience working in the garden I'd call it a success. Katie S. and I worked the 8:00-10:00 shift this morning.
We began by thinking ahead and setting aside a few things that will be used in the lessons for the students next week. We took a mini adventure to find mulch at the local recycling plant only to find that it was closed, simply meaning its a job for another day. Once back at the school we planted some watermelon seeds and turned our attention to weeding for the rest of our shift.
The garden is starting to look really good with the weeds being pulled and the vibrant colored tops of the boxes encasing various growing vegitables. I'm really looking forward to seeing the kids learn in this beautiful little oasis.
