Pumpkin Patch Update

Photo: Today was the last activity for the garden club!  They had a great time this summer taking care of our library's pumpkin patch.  A big thank you goes out to the Kansas State University Agricultural Research Center.

This week we had our last group visit to the pumpkin patch. There were cute little baby pumpkins, and the squash bugs had been eliminated. We got to use some custom tools in our weed battle (great for the zombie apocalypse as well). After slaughtering a few weeds, we received  a tour of the weather yard where instruments in little white houses create accurate rain, temperature, and humidity measurements. Many thanks to the Kansas State University Agricultural Research Center, and also thanks to Addie Billinger for the fine footage below:
