Awesome Little Gardeners

Since today was cool and sunny being out in the garden was wonderful! We were super productive today.

During free exploration time a bunch of the kids actually sifted ALL the almost finished compost and now we are ready to turn over the first bin and start a new bin!

Today’s topic was weeds and we learned to identify a bunch of weeds and even tasted some edible ones! I think the sourgrass was the most popular. The kids also became familiar with my LEAST favorite weed… pigweed. It is EVERYWHERE.

In the garden we practiced all the skills we’ve gone over so far including watering, hunting garden foes, and weeding. This bed was empty by the time we were finished! (That’s mostly pigweed, in case you were wondering!)
