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 will take place on the library patio from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. Marie Steckmest, Master Gardener for Marquez School will lead this activity. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

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.
