Pruning and Preparing Trees
We learned that young trees need help growing into a well-formed fruit bearing tree. Our trees were pruned to eliminate young branches from growing inward, but to grow outward. Two branches are being helped in the process of growing branches out and away from each other. This is our apple tree.
Here is an interesting irrigation idea.

|Ripe strawberries are beautiful and flavorful, just not abundant enough for any one culinary class.|
"MARCH GLADNESS" Here are some of the late winter crops!

|Early mornings in March|
FEBRUARY 25TH. Today we planted tomatoes, radishes, carrots, eggplant, and lettuce. The weather was very windy and unfortunately several fourth graders got soil in their little lovely eyes. They were smart and knew to flush out the eye with fresh water. Today the fourth graders also mixed in a rich potting soil with the garden soil that is in the bed. Now the soil is richer. We also fertilized the new vegetables. Some people had more fun than others.
Hey, guess what? The apple tree has flowers! Yea!
OCTOBER STRAWBERRY PATCH
What strawberries we had were pretty good.
