First Day for 7th Grade

A photographic essay of the first day of gardening for 7th grade.  Thank you, Winter, for your excellent photography!

Welcome Gnome

The mysterious Shovel Man is ready to get to work.

Um.. Guys... The bed goes inside the garden, not out here!

Tools of the trade.

Pulling the last of the weeds in our root bed.

Beautiful earth.

Taking a break while we find out what's next.

Getting out the compost sifter.

Shoveling compost into the sifter.

A batch of compost just before sifting.

Finnigan the spy horse keeps careful watch.

A butterfly enjoys the results of last spring's labor.

A final rest in the shade and chat for the end of class.

The next day Hiro helps plant carrots, beets, onions, and his boots.
