4h Community Garden Update

Sprint PictureMail

We went to our 4h community garden today to do some weeding. Right now is the hard part of gardening, all work and nothing to show. We have to haul water from the rain barrels to the garden. The kids got bored fast and went to dig elsewhere.

At least they weren’t digging up the few things we had growing.

I added manure tea to our garden at home. I hope it helps. It looks a little dismal. Many of our things aren’t growing at all. MJ’s pumpkin looks good though.

And her Marigold she planted at the last 4h meeting.

Kids Off to 4h Camp Shakamak

JEM, MCD, and DCD were off to 4h Camp Shakamak.

They will have lots of fun doing camp things like:

  • swimming
  • boating
  • hiking
  • launching pop bottle rockets
  • making crafts
  • group activities
  • and so much more

This is there first time to 4h camp and JEM’s first time to any camp. I have never been away from her for more than a day and I was freaking out. Nervous that I didn’t send her with everything she needed.

They left today (Saturday) and come back Tuesday. I know they will have lots of fun and will be a great experience for them.

But I can’t wait for my JEM to get back.
