Given the testing this week, we weren't expecting to have any classes out to the garden today. Luckily, we had a surprise kindergarden class visit the garden on their way to gym! We spent most of the short visit with them today looking for bugs in the grow boxes and tasting some of the leafy greens.

We have some gorgeous Swiss chard and corn, as well as several other plants that are growing wonderfully! The children have been learning about how bugs are great for the garden, such as bees and ladybugs and that these bugs make their home under the plants and help them grow. They especially enjoyed shouting out what kinds of bugs fly around and pollinate the flowers in the garden.
We made a quick side lesson when a type of mushroom popped up and the students also learned about decomposers!
The bottom two rows of pictures illustrates the time difference of just two weeks. Pretty soon, we'll need to take some of that lettuce to make a salad for lunch!
