Pfew! It's getting really hot out there! The Li'l Farmers had to take lots of water breaks and take time out in the shade, just like our farmers do! But they persevered! Planted seeds, transplanted seedlings, and harvested vegetables! Below are a few shots from the day.

Another great day at Tanaka Farms with the Li'l Farmers helping out! It was pretty hot out there in the fields. The Li'l Farmers have a new appreciation for the hard work the farmers do in the hot sun. Here are a few photos!

A perfect summer day for getting out there and doing a Li'l farming! The Li'l Farmers cleared out the weeds and a whole row of overgrown Romaine lettuce! Then they planted new lettuce to grow! Below are some of  the pictures from the day's workshop! 

April 2 - 6, 2018

Children and adults of all ages enjoyed a day on the farm learning and getting their hands dirty.  Planting, transplanting, weeding and planting vegetables were all in a days hard work.  These are some of the pictures of the day.  You can see the plants starting to sprout in the trays.  Sorry the pictures are blurry the next set of pictures will be better.  

Below are the seeds that were planted.  These pictures are from April 23 so up to 19 days later and many plants are up to about a inch to 3 inches tall.

May 5, 2018 Pictures.  These are much clearer.  I tried to show the names as much as possible.  Some of the names faded and were not legible or completely wiped off.  The plants are growing but so are the weeds.  We will have to go through and pull the weeds out soon.
