We also harvested the last of the broccoli and a bit more spinach for the new members to take home.
Others also enjoyed looking for bugs and finding double-headed dandelion flowers! A few even helped with washing the tools at the end of the session! After 11/2 hours everyone seemed tired enough to call it a day and go home! Comment overheard "This is fun"!
