Sitting in the shade, cooling down and having a drink of water is always an option. Some days, some gardeners feel it is just too hot to be in the sun. For them, paper and crayons are always at hand. All I ask is that the drawings be of the garden.
In the artwork above, Avery has captured the big tree and the raised beds where we grow carrots, kale, sugar snap peas, green peppers, green beans, yellow beans and purple beans, red Norland potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cabbage, spearmint, peppermint and lots of herbs including sage, basil, oregano, parsley and thyme.
When I looked at these masterpieces recently, I loved the perspective. You have all seen my photographs of the garden. Now enjoy the artwork of the youngsters that work in the garden, weeding, watering and growing vegetables.
That’s our scarecrow, Luigi. He watches over the garden.
In addition to vegetables, we grow flowers for the pollinators.
This is a picture of a wooden crow that rests in our garden.
And here is a picture of me, Natalie, in my yellow hat.
Thank you young gardeners — or, should I say — young artists for the drawings.
I especially love the drawing Hannah did of me and I appreciate the poem she wrote on the back. Thank you. It is a great pleasure teaching all of you how to grow food.
