Ms. Silvia shared a rack of honeycomb from her neighbor's hive. No honey but the wax comb was so interesting to see up close. We also planted some seeds for hummingbirds and butterflies. We love seeing them visit our garden!
Winter gardening in the San Fernando Valley is the best. Cool temperatures and sunny skies make for a pleasant time digging in our garden. Check out the tomato ripening in our plot.
We eagerly got to work transplanting the seedlings we planted before winter break - Sweet Peas (flowers), Chard, and more. Nadia started work on planting some succulents in an unused dirt area outside rooms 33 and 34. We marveled at the monarch butterfly resting on milk weed.
