I've had a great time getting back into the school gardens swing of things. I gardened all summer, of course, but now the students and all their enthusiasm is (are?) back!
I can't begin to convey the excitement when the kids find creatures such as these.
This huge caterpillar is a tomato hornworm.
A recently hatched monarch butterfly.
The best part is that the kids have to be pretty keen observers to find these. I love to see them so focused and quiet while in the garden.
