A snake in the garden! Oh my!

This week's photos are courtesy of Barbara Holloway who photographed 3rd grade as they worked in the garden on Monday.

It was a rainy day.

 But we harvested anyway.  Here Thace works on harvesting basil.

Some of us worked on filling in a hole and ended up creating an amazing mudbath.  Ms.  Mueller sang a song in honor:

Mud, mud, glorious mud!
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.
So follow me, follow
Down to the hollow
And there let us wallow in glorious mud!
- Flanders and Swan

Another task was mulching the broccoli.  First step was to get the wheelbarrow.

 Next, fill it up.

Keep filling!

And fill another one when that one gets full.  
We have no shots of the broccoli being mulched because we were distracted by...

A friendly garden visitor, being held here by Lola.

Snakes eat the bugs that eat our plants so we like to see them in the garden.  It was nice to have a quick visit with this fella before we set him free to go do his job some more.
