Today the star of the garden was the okra (pictured right)... they are getting so big so fast! I was lucky to snag one to take home for dinner and boy, was it yummy! I was also surprised to see how much the kids liked the okra; most little kids I know would not touch okra, but the Lakewood students love it!

We spent most of our time weeding the squash and pumpkin patch and pulling out dead leaves to create more room for
growth. Since the arugula has so many seeds, our classes helped us harvest the arugula seed pods again today. The classes really liked pretending to be seeds, then buds and flowers, and seeds again. 
Sara also fixed the hose today and we were able to water the garden very easily. Instead of watering for 1 1/2 hours, it only took 45 minutes!  The garden's getting huge, there are a bunch of pumpkins, squash, cucumbers..and a baby watermelon!
