All my students love when they hear that today is all about BUGS! Let’s talk about what bugs are beneficial to the garden and what bugs are pests. They were sad to learn that their beloved roly polies were not so great for our plants and surprised that those scary bees are SUPER beneficial to the garden!
After making some simple bookmarks to remember which bug is which, they went on a bug hunt. They were quite victorious in their bug hunting and found not only bees, worms and ladybugs, but a slug and millipede as well!
Some lemons drizzled with honey were a delicious treat at the end of class!
Look at this amazing artichoke, looking so happy and taking over the garden.
