And skunks on the farm….
The presentation was a *little* lengthy for a five year old, so Reese & his best friend started getting silly together…. Luckily Mrs. Tammy bought pumpkin bread to share, so full mouths & tummies kept everyone happy a little longer!
On our way through the vegetable garden to the greenhouse.
Always time to run in open spaces!
The pumpkin vine was very interesting. There were lots of bugs. And the vine felt prickly.
We have the plans all printed out for our worm bin. I just need to get more ambitious and put it together. Why compost with worms?
We saw red bugs…
And red bugs in a line on the pea pods…
We saw pollinators….
Unfortunately, the apple orchard was hit hard with a fungus and there were NO apples to pick! So everyone searched for bugs instead. The stuffed/plastic variety, not the fleshy variety!
After our tour, Farmer let everyone grab an apple from the box. Instead of picking one from the tree, they were fresh from the farmer’s market this year. I’m still amazed that Reese will eat an apple, skin & all, at the apple orchard. Every other day? MUST be peeled!
