June 14, 2017

At Morris today we had to tend to the tomatoes. With over 40 tomato plants, there is a lot of work to do. A few of the plants had what look like aphids, so we had to go over every plant and rub away the bugs and their eggs. While we were at it, we picked off the tomato suckers, which will hopefully make the plants produce more fruit. On the other side of the garden, we thinned out some of the kale and spinach plants so that they will grow better.

After working in the garden, we hit the kitchen to make lemonade. We harvested spearmint from the garden to add to it, which was enjoyed by the group, even if it wasn't as hot outside as it was last week.
