Anna saw this tree, stopped, eyed it for a while as she sized it up, decided she could climb it and went for it! That's my girl! She told me "Don't spot me, Mommy, I can do it all by myself."

The girls found lots of 'wormy squirmies' and had fun helping Mitch plant radishes in the shape of a heart in one section of the garden that he had just finished double-digging. We'll have to show you some pictures soon of how the garden plots are shaping up. The arugula is coming up in one and some rye (cover-crop) in the other.
