Changing of the season

The “closing down” of the garden for the season is always a yearly highlight that gets kids active and engaged in the garden. They get to stomp around in the soil harvesting the last of the goodies still there AND help tear it all down for the winter. Today they cycled through 4 activities.

1. Tearing out calendula and nastertium plants

2. Chopping of the plants into compost

3. Harvesting potatoes

4. Harvesting mint for mint tea this winter (and drinking some before washing our own cups!)
