The lawn is freshly mowed, the weeds are largely weeded, and the flowers are coming in full swing. Stop in and take a look! You’ll be able to find peas, mint, lemon balm, dill, oregano, and lots of nasturtium for your salads. Notice the variety–a lot of squash blossoms, flowering tomatoes, and sunflowers shooting up.
The rain garden is also doing particularly well this year. Why? BECAUSE OF ALL THE RAIN!! For those of you new to the school, there are drain pipes that transport the rain from the roof under the garden to the rain garden, a place where storm water soaks into the ground and is filtered by native plants with deep root systems. This keeps pollution down in our lakes. Here are some things to notice with your kids.
