Friends find a "wood chip tarantula" today during morning recess. Trust me, it wasn't a tarantula, but it WAS pretty big!
Unfortunately, our pallet garden didn't quite make it. We salvaged the tomato plants that we could and took down the rest today. The good news is that we found a bunch of insects and worms in the soil. Friends were super excited! Next year, we will create a raised garden bed and work on getting a spigot on the outside of the building. I hear that properly watering plants is important :)
