Victoria and I enjoyed all the helpful hands offered by the SPIN kids on Friday!  We buzzed through the garden like bees and harvested raspberries and lots of vegetables.  We had many root veggies like carrots, turnips, beets and rutabaga to wash, and the cold water felt wonderful!  Many of us chose to sample a freshly plucked carrot and thought the taste was better than those we eat from the store!  

Pest Hunting!
Soapy water and a container
Pest-hunting was high on the list for some in this group!  Thanks for helping to remove those pesky Japanese Beetles that are loving our soybean and raspberry crops!  
 
Some of us thought we would spice up the taste of our watermelon treat, too.  Basil on watermelon isn't too bad at all!
