It may not feel like it, or at least it didn't last week, but summertime is officially behind us. As the weeds in our gardens, fields, and yards will soon be dead from frost, what happens to the seeds these weeds have produced?
The last few weeks have been non stop up here. We've had parents come in and just stand there wondering if we are actually getting anything done. And the answer is YES! It has been organized chaos while working on these mini booths. But, it was well worth it seeing how we have managed to finish over 100 booths this year!!
