This week the kids at Astoria Library have been busy working in the outdoor garden. They’ve been transplanting peppers from pots kept inside the library to the raised beds outdoors. In addition, they’ve been weeding and tending to the plants in the Shakespeare Garden. The kids put the weeds and dead leaves that they’ve raked into our compost bin. The children loved taking turns to water the plants and were very enthusiastic about all of the gardening activities!
