A Very Warm Day with Woodbury Peaceful Grove UMC Youth!



Wednesday, July 17th was a hot sunny day in the RCS garden.  A group from Woodbury Peaceful Grove UMC was visiting to learn some things and lend some assistance.  Liz and Paul, Master Gardeners, were there to teach about pollination and the importance of pollinators to our vegetable garden.  We learned about the monarch's migration to Mexico, the honey bees hives, and bumble bees hibernation through winter.

The rows of carrots were thinned out and they are now getting more sun light and water and thus growing bigger.  We also were able to get the carrots, beets, boc choy, turnips, and soy beans weeded.  The girls even found the sprinkler shocking but a welcome relief from the heat.  Nothing was quite ready for harvesting today.  The girls were shown the scale and how produce is weighed and readied for the food shelf.
