Week One; Maintenance and Getting Acquainted

Today, I worked at Lakewood with Corday. The garden is looking beautiful. Almost everything has been mowed around the beds, so it looks nice and neat. We have a few eggplants, tomatoes and peppers planted, they are putting along in the heat but doing well.
We could tell a lot of work was already done this week, but the butterfly garden still needed a lot of weeding, so we worked on that for the two hours. This part of the garden is especially important for the health of the whole garden because it attracts pollinators. Just today, I witnessed many different types of bees buzzing around all of the flowers.
This week was a good start to get acquainted with the garden, but I'm really excited to meet the kids next week and start teaching them about gardening.
