We learned about the activity in the compost pile and what compost is for.
Earthworms are now living in the compost. They help to break down the things in the compost and create new earth.
We had to break off the garlic scapes so that the garlic bulbs can grow large. We took home two scapes to cook. You can use them just as you would use garlic.
We spread hay around the melons and squashes so that weeds would not grow and moisture would stay in the ground.
We read Tops and Bottoms to learn about plants in the garden. Then we completed a worksheet.
