Our Sign Has Arrived!

Thanks to Noel for designing, organizing, and decorating this beautiful sign. TYCO built the sign and Sandy Lynch handled the paperwork. What a team effort.

Now the garden has the same logo as the garden :)

Hey team!

Today I went out and got to weeding the some areas, but I also ate some tomatoes and took some photos. If you need a reminder of why this is happening, I highly recommend going out and picking a cherry tomato and sinking your teeth into it. You won't regret it, I promise. Unless you're allergic to awesomeness.

Here is what our project, and all of our hard work, has turned into:

Little baby ears of corn.

A GIANT pepper. (The caps were on purpose)

A little honey bee having a snack on the sunflower.

A steak.

You grow corn!

Little green squash, hanging out in the shade.
