Today we went on the roof to see how our 3 weeks  old beans were doing

They are growing fine and started climbing the wires the kids set for them last time

Today, six students braved the elements and came to garden in the drizzle – which is, by the way the perfect weather for gardening.

We went on the roof to revisit the beans we planted 2 weeks ago

– they were ready for some help to reach the fence

in its new home
.The end.
