A summer poem by a Marquez School second grader

One of last year's second graders wrote the following poem as part of the Palisades' library summer reading program. It's another example of how gardening reinforces the academics! Maybe other young gardeners will write poems about the garden. If so, feel free to email Ms. Marie and I'll post them!

Good job, Sara!

This week's harvest

Today I harvested some tomatoes and herbs from the garden bed that has a squirrel-proof cover.  Kurt will be squirrel-proofing some other beds this summer! Please email me if you want some of this summer's harvest.
