Lizard, grasshopper, squash, and apples at Thomas Starr King

Today the lesson was on soil health and compost. We snacked on mint, broccoli flowers, and fennel. We were so lucky to see a lizard, a giant grasshopper, caterpillars, ladybugs, a hummingbird, and we even found an old lizardskin. We planted squash and saw that the apple tree is fruiting.

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.
