Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve

We came ready to garden in the rain, but the skies cleared for us and we planted our Spring crop of corn and cantaloupe, and will add an avocado tree 2 of our greenies grew from a seed. We had fun learning about why gardening is good for the environment, planting sunflower seeds to take home, and snacking on sugar peas we grew and lots of cantaloupe, of course! Thank you to Susan at the Master Gardener Speakers Bureau & Florida Master Gardener Program for a fun presentation!
