Our School Garden , A Work in Progress

It is that time of year when we are busy, busy, busy!
Busy playing, fixing, finishing, preparing and growing!
Our school garden may not have many plants growing in it right now, but important work is taking place:)
The fence and arch were pretty beat up after the winter, so our first project was to hammer the loose boards back into place.

Our Colorful fence has faded a bit, so the next project was to touch up last years paint job, these little workers were up for the big job.

We still have some more painting to do and the arch is a work in progress at the moment, but I think it is looking fun and colorful.

In addition to the painting and fixing that was taking place, the children were also turning the soil, and getting it ready for plants.  Nothing like digging dirt and looking for worms to excite this crew.

Of course there have been many breaks from our busy work.  This crew received a nice wagon ride after planting our strawberry plants in early Spring.

They have also been seed starting in the house.  Here are some children planting sunflower seeds in 
egg cartons.

They sprouted in 2 days, but got a little leggy before we got them in the ground,
I am hoping they make it!

This week we hope to finish the arch before the end of school and the start of Summer Camp.
