But it is that time of the summer when you have to at least THINK about being an ant. Fall is out there on the horizon, the garden is in full swing, except the tomatos, and the fruit is falling.We have apple trees. Two of them. They are a dwarf variety. But I don't think they know that. At least this year. The Gravesteins are falling.
Gardens provide so much more than food. We've used the garden to study bugs, talk about seeds, the water cycle, plants, sunshine, and on and on. It's a wealth of education as well.
The whole summer shouldn't be spent as an ant though. There should be some grasshopper time. And there has been.
Plenty of playground time.
Off to enjoy the summer. Spending part of it as a grasshopper and part of it as an ant.
