Last week was a long one! Going back to work means prepping for a new school year and SO many meetings. (And sitting in seats made for 8 year olds during those meetings!) I am absolutely exhausted by the end of the day! But, everything will be ready by the first day for my students!
I have been able to get in the garden several nights this week and had a few nice harvests! I need to make so much more out of tomatoes!
We also had our stand set up this weekend! We had lots of customers!
We finally had to take out the trash. Our goal for the year is to only make 6 bags, so I am thinking that we should be ok!
We also did the compost pickup today. It takes a lot of scrubbing and cleaning, but we only upcycle unwanted containers for the compost. The regular buckets are from a company’s laundry detergent and the left are kitty litter containers.
And check out how much we have composted so far:
And last, but no least, we found 13 more monarch caterpillars that we will be raising and releasing!
And our last 2 were ready to be released on Thursday! 1 girl and 1 boy! (The girl flew away immediately!)
I’m looking forward to getting myself back in the work routine and hopefully having a great school year! Keep blooming! 🌱❤️
