We FINALLY get to Plant

 We had rainy Mondays, freezing weather and several delays to getting our plants in the ground.

 With help from Kayla and Eric we found the garden plots cleared of weeds and ready -- the Kids did get to help clearing a few new weeds that cropped up and turning over the soil
 There was lots of raking, and hoeing, digging and turning over the packed dirt.
Once the soil was ready, the students made a plan for the right place for the various types of plants -- beans, pumpkins, tomatoes and squash

The kids had an awesome time-- and were thrilled to finally get in the garden
