2016 Tahsis Days Annual Community Garden Slugfest

The hunt was on!  Who can find the most slugs?

Checking out the slug jail

These guys were pretty determined

Juanita and Dudley watch with anticipation.  Dudley was dressed up with a bow around his neck for the occasion. Dudly and his other ducky friends get all the slugs at the end of the event.  Yum yum!

Pondering the scavenger hunt
Great stuff to find in the garden!

After a great story from Catherine about a slug who wants a pretty shell, the kids get to make slugs with shells as a craft

Loving the fruit kabobs!

Ice cold lemonade, with the addition of mint and lemon balm from the garden

Mason bee update

The mason bees have entered their next stage. They have laid their eggs in the hive and plugged the openings with a cement-looking substance. Now the hive has to be taken in so the birds don't get it. It sits on the top of the fridge until September when I scrape out the tubes and remove the individual pods. Clean them up and store them for the winter.
