This plant is a Lenten Rose. It has a few distinguishable features: the flowers face
downwards while most other flowers face the sun. It is also poisonous (it probably
won’t kill humans because a lot of it would have to be consumed but can kill
small animals like dogs or cats).
Our WAWWE class got started on some observations, cleaning, planting, and generally enjoying each other’s presence and the lovely weather outside. We got a bit dirty, planted peonies, sage and mint, learned tool vocabulary and purposed and got some seeds planted for summer. Oh, and dug up piles of dandelions before they take over the universe.
This is my favorite picture from my last trip to the garden: it is a baby radish. There were planted at the beginning of October and a week later, we could already see them coming out; I think it is quite rewarding. I also find interesting to see the evolution between this early stage of the growth and the final state of the radish. Fun fact: I tasted it and it already had a bit of taste! – Text and photo by Gabrielle
Our school year is drawing to a close and we’re probably having one last dig with the students before everyone leaves on their internships. There was more potato hilling, border repair and onion and rhubarb distribution. We hope to see everyone again in the fall.
