Happy St. Patty's Day!

'Tis a rainy day in the Peace Patch. Great for our beds, unfortunate for the kids who can't come out today. Last week, Deb and I met our kindergarten/first graders and introduced them to the garden and explained a bit about weeding. We showed them examples we had picked, Spanish Needle and Sedge, and explained why weeding is important.

Plenty 'o green in the garden- no shamrocks though! Here are a few pics taken last week:

Look at that pineapple bed- at least 4 are starting to fruit! That was a big hit with the kids, I think. It's very hard not to wanna grab that beautiful fruit.

I am looking forward to spending more time in the garden with the kids and learning more about the plants and gardening myself. Enjoy your day!
