We met our Big Buddies in the garden today. It was impressive! Our garden bed had a forest of carrots and weeds. It was hard to see what was ready to be picked. But we took our time and looked carefully. The Big Buddies helped us dig down and loosen the soil so we could each get a carrot out. We were surprised when some of us pulled up radishes instead! Everyone got at least one vegetable to take home. There are many more in the garden bed. We will have to go back next week and finish our harvest. Then we will wash the vegetables and taste them in class. We also talked about how we could make our garden better the next time we start planting.
