We have been in a bit of a drought here in Florida, so when I woke up to torrential downpours, I was relieved. Some things are flourishing, watermelons and squash especially. We are still in the process of fixing some trellis that was knocked over during the wind storm last weekend. We picked a few weeds, but thanks to early weeding in the beds, they are almost eliminated from our soil. The eternal battle between border grass and the mulch continues, though.
Its not the same without our mentees helping us in the peace patch, but the work must get done. No matter if it has been one day or ten days, I feel like there is something new and exciting to be discovered in the garden. We are excited to have our lakewood students return out to the schoolyard next week, as the harvest fest nears ever closer.
