|The most important thing growing on our farm.., the kids!|
|Our zucchini harvest was amazing!|
On the other hand, we have had failure. Many of our beds were getting too much water because in addition to our watering efforts, the school's sprinklers were also hitting the beds. This caused an anerobic situation in the beds and things turned yellow and wouldn't grow. A lesson was in the works. We had to first figure out the problem and then work out a way to address it. Other problems came up along the way, and we either solved them or ripped plants right out of the beds. All of this creates new learning and will certainly help us grow better crops on the next go around.
Yes, learning and problem solving are taking place everyday on our farm. There is so much room for all of us to grow. We love it! It is all FARM-GOOD!
