Compost, soil, and a big moth

Today we learned about compost and soil. We took trimmings from the garden plants and put them in the tumbler. Then we had snacks and planted seeds! These fava beans are rocketing out of the ground.

We trimmed this mint back and it has returned vigorously!

We saw this giant moth in the lavender. It was so big that at first I thought it was a bird.

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
