Things are finally getting going in our greenhouse at the school. The trough that we installed isn't ready for planting yet, but it makes a good shelf. Most of the puny seeds I started at home weren't very strong, so I started a couple new trays here. I'm growing Tomatoes (Purple Cherokee and Celebrity), Soybeans, Bush beans, Milkweed, Basil (Purple Opal), Broccoli, Peppers (Carmen and Diamond Bell), and Morning Glories. Some of these will be donated to the school and some will go home with me later on.
Water is siphoned off the roof into this barrel and used to water the greenhouse.
The outdoor classroom.
We were thrilled to see that the apple tree planted with last year's 4th grade class is getting leaves on it. (Our previous apple tree failed, so this is a big victory!) I need to do some research and figure out how to prune it.
A pretty catkin from our pussywillow tree.
A pair of ducks nest here evey year. We think it might be the same couple.
Strawberry patch needs some work - it has no where to stretch out without running into weeds.
One of the fourth grade teachers has started a gardening club!
I hope I get to plant with some of the classes here soon!
