We made it past the last date of expected frost, February 19th, without much fanfare but I am hoping for at least a break in the rain for our first garden session of the project this coming Saturday.
We have also scheduled our first extra field trip, to the grand opening of the Full Circle Farm produce stand on Wednesday, March 4th from 4:00 to 6:00. This is a great place for us to visit because the kids will have a working day on the farm at Full Circle coming up on the 28th. That ought to make it abundantly clear how the produce gets to the farmstand. ;-)
The garden is starting to take shape. There is lots to do and to build and some small garden beds ready for planting. We got a very generous donation of seed from the National Gardening Association. We’ll make a Thank You card for that when we’re together.
We’ve created a Ning for the kids to use to share their ideas, photos, videos, blogs and comments as the project progresses. Now all we need is a four or five hour break in the Spring rain, and we’re all set!
