Spring Garden

March 3, 2008



I have been working on getting the school garden prepared for spring planting. Last week the kids gobbled up the last of the lettuce, broccoli, and cauliflower we planted in the fall....so amazing to see two year olds begging for more raw broccoli! We are getting ready to start harvesting (and eating!) the strawberries and carrots. We built a bamboo teepee for the sugar snap peas which are starting to sprout and we have a new compost container. Getting ready to dig a new bed for our ABC garden (plants for each letter in the alphabet...ambitious, but exciting!) My library bag is full of beautiful garden books with bright glossy photos of herb gardens, children's gardens, and secret gardens. I love garden books. And I love the change of seasons. The excitement of planning, planting, and dreaming of what is to come. The azaleas are in full bloom like southern belles in their big fancy, flouncy dresses. The oak trees are covered in bright green leaves. It is spring in the South!

Great pictures! Our climate is a lot different here but it's just about time to plant broccoli, peas, greens, etc.
