The end of the year was, as usual, a whirlwind. From the many field trips (WWU gardens, Fairhaven Park, Cornet Bay) to the many activities and assemblies things were just busy, busy, busy. Now, the days are slow and I find myself amused by what I choose to focus on outside of the classroom. Things I have learned since school ended on the 18th: >How to make ricotta cheese! Not very difficult and it tastes just divine. I don't think I will ever buy mass produced ricotta again. >How to trade stocks online. No phone calls, just click and trade. Scary at first but I am warming up to this. > That raspberry plants can rust. Sadly those little orange spots on one of my raspberry plants is rust, not a nice disease at all. It doesn't seem to have stopped the plant from producing berries but I have not been successful eliminating it yet. That will be my next learning goal!
Hope this finds you learning new things too. Have a wonderful summer!
