Today, I wrote a letter after school to my best friend in Tuvalu, Raita. I made some new stationery, with recycled paper and added seeds into it as it dried. I know she will plant the stationery in her garden after she reads my letter.
I invited her to visit me this Summer in Wisconsin. I hope she can come here to see my farm, and meet my forest friends. I know she would like meeting Jezebel too. I am sure she would like to see the Earth’s Clubhouse, and all the experiments my friends and I are doing to save the planet.
My Dad is driving me tomorrow in Morrie the Electric Truck to Viroqua so I can pick out some pretty stamps at the Post Office. I hope I am finished with my letter writing by then! I like to write!
The apples are here! The apples are here! Yesterday our family went to an apple orchard near our house. We picked so many kinds of apples. There are Lodi apples, Johnathan apples, Ida Red apples, Cortland apples and they are all delicious. I like this one apple it looks like a potato and tastes like an orange. Those apples are not available until the peak of apple season in October. I can’t wait! My dad said we picked over 20 pounds of apples. He is confident that we will eat all of them.
Morrie is an electric truck made in Wisconsin!

Yesterday, when my dad was driving me to school, and Morrie was going up a hill I thought I saw this huge, black shadow moving across the ground. When I looked in the air I saw this big, black bird, its’ wings were as wide as the car in front of us!
In school, my teacher taught us that this bird circling in the air was a turkey vulture. We learned that the turkey vulture can soar in the sky for hours, has very good eyesight and sense of smell to look for food. Maybe the vulture was flying above us because she smelled the peanut butter and jelly sandwich in my lunch box.

Today my dad drove Morrie the electric truck to Madison. I of course went with him
since we do not have school this week! Morrie helped us bring fresh onions, and morels to the public market near Madison’s famous capitol square.
There were lots of farmers from all over Wisconsin at the market. Myles slept next to me on the seat on our trip. He was tired from running up and down the hills with me and Isabel.
Tomorrow my mom and dad are taking the raw milk that Erma, Selma, and Gretta made to the Driftless Valley Food Cooperative. My mom helped me spell that! I am visiting my friend Jessica at her farm. She has lots of brothers and sisters they all work very hard on the farm. Her family is Amish.
