Cindy took her pre-K classes outside this week.
They found the beans in the Three Sisters garden.

We have rattlesnake pole beans and Tongue of Fire beans, which both do double-duty: good fresh when they’re not too big, great dried after they’ve been left on the vine.
There are Kentucky Wonder beans out there, too.

Before the kids came out, those  were just Kentucky beans.

It’s the children who¬†brought the wonder.

Garden Workshop

Today we met to plan, these brave teachers and me. They teach kids grades K through 5. They have ideas and energy. So much energy they couldn’t help themselves as we toured the butterfly garden. They started yanking out weeds left and right.

I took my sweet time talking while we were out there. Why turn down helpers?
