 A big huge thank you to Eagle Scout Easton Jenkins and his family and friends!  He built our new garden table as a project to be awarded his Eagle Scout badge.  Congratulations!!  His family and friends came to our garden September 10th and installed our new garden table and helped us put in our new garden floor of decomposed granite.  Awesome teamwork!!
 
 
 
 
September 10th work day.  Thanks to all the volunteers that helped us prepare the ground for the decomposed granite.  We will be putting in the rest of the granite when we build the remaining two beds.

5/25/2016  UPDATE:  Some Gulf Fritillary caterpillars have been spotted hanging out on our passion vine!  The caterpillar (pictured below) is richly colored orange and black with spikes. The chrysalis will look like a dead leaf but will transform into a beautiful butterfly much the size of a monarch.  This butterfly is identified by its stained glass wings and large grey patches on the underside of its wings.  We are really excited to have this striking species!
