Library Learning Patch Nature Club--The Web of Life and Our First Harvest

Today the group learned about how everything in nature is interrelated. The book for this session was The Web of Life.

A Giant Book!

The children played a game demonstrating how everything in nature is connected and discussed how one thing affects another.

Now it was harvest time!!

Our lettuce crop

Some of the radishes were ready also.

 Yummy  radishes!

Looks like salad with dinner tonight!

 Dividing the first harvest

The group planted new herbs (the first ones did not survive the last freeze) and lots of petunias. We hope the petunias discourage the squash bugs.

Stay tuned! We have our first blooms on one of the tomato plants, the sunflowers are growing, and peas are climbing.
