Time to wander around the school garden. Join me.
Let’s start with the roses.
When the breeze is blowing, and you get a waft of honeysuckle flowers, it’s a little bit of heaven.
Another 3×3 square foot gardening model, with the pvc criss-cross hoop. Planted with kale, swiss chard, peppers and marigolds.
Gazebo windowboxes planted with flowers purchased at the Warners Springs Mother’s Day plant sale as well as plants I scored for free at the end of Master Gardener Spring Seminar.
Also new to the gazebo, an inhabited bird nest in the rafters!
Peas, glorious peas.
GARDEN FAIL. We planted this out with three varieties of spinach, which barely sprouted then turned yellow, despite babying. Keepin’ it humble, in the garden.
Sidewalk art adjacent to the garden.
We took our artist-made solar fountain inside for the winter so that it wouldn’t crack in the low temperatures. It’s now back home, though in a different location—closer to the habitat bed.
Looks like we may have our first crop of grapes when school resumes.
Kat Beck introducing the preview films in order to introduce the Wild and Scenic Film Festival at an all-school assembly. After watching “Watermelon Magic,” we’ve witnessed students standing over plants and whispering, “grow, grow, grow!”
Lastly, giving Backcountry Collaborative partner awards, I got to gush about my Garden Beneficials and University of Wednesday parent helpers. I made the point: not only do they do A LOT of work in the garden, but they also love the garden with me. I am grateful for both.
So great!! Love the photos and catching up with all the good things in the garden!
It’s a little paradise right now. Last night we had Open House and I had kids eating everywhere—strawberries, peas, mulberries—just gorgeous.
I was so blessed by this BEAUTIFUL garden last week! To smell that Honeysuckle and taste those wonderful peas with some precious ESK students.Thank-you! I am once again amazed at what Tricia Elisara does for this school and this world. And still has time to be the best friend a girl could ever want 😉
This is the most wonderful comment. Thank you my dear friend. It was so much fun to have you help me with a lesson last week—and helpful! 🙂
I’m really looking forward to the tour! I hope I have a camera by then.
That’s great to hear! I will look forward to seeing you at the school garden, if that’s one of your stops!
