Strawberry life cycle printables

I love studying plants and life cycles during this time of year! We have a small garden with lots of strawberries, currants, blackberries, and well, pretty much every berry ever. And not so small.

Green bean life cycle printables

We have recently started preparing out garden for spring. Because we are still (yes, still!) working on our home, our backyard is still home to never ending construction materials.

I am so relieved to have cooler weather, the smell of pumpkin everything (not to mention the huge freezer meal portion of pumpkin pancakes that will be made later today), and occasional rainstorms that [...]
