Second Meeting/Final Outdoor Activity

We met this week to wrap up the garden for the year.  The younger kids gleaned from the garden seed pods that will dry out and be used to plant the garden in the Spring!  We talked about the life cycle of plants.  I broke it down to, "Plants live to grow seeds, Seed live to grow plants",  and the cycle continues.  The older kids did the heavy lifting.  They pulled out the plants and cleaned up the arbors.  We filled the compost bin and packed it down.
The milkweed plants are doing their jobs.  See the awesome caterpillar!

At the end of the month the boxes are getting a well deserved repair.  After 6 season, the boxes have held up well, but are in need to some TLC.
Thank you for following our garden club!
