Class F had the opportunity this week to spend three beautiful days at the Land School. After coming this past May to plant this year's potato rows, they were now able to harvest the fruits of their labor! As is the yearly Class F tradition, the work in the field was followed by the crispy snack of french fries, made by the 3rd years.

Much time was spent playing games at the Athletic Field and on the sidewalk, visiting the sheep, llamas, and new chicks, and playing at the Tree House.

While Monday afternoon's activities revolved around potatoes, Tuesday's variety of activities included work with the bees, study at the pond, and book binding in the classroom. Having just returned from the Junior High Odyssey, we were happy that Doug was able to come out for the day, suiting everyone up in bee suits to extract honey from the hives! It has been an abundant year inside the honeycombs.
And lastly, a harvest list for the week!
Cabbage (Napa, Savoy, Green)
Green Beans (actually, Purple Beans!)
Kale (Dino, Curly, Red Russian, Siberian)
Melons (cantaloupe and watermelon)
