I don’t want to forget to tell you that I am growing snow peas, lettuce, and tomatoes in my hoop houses! I am also building a terrarium that people can put on their bikes.
But the most important thing to report is Spring is here, and the Red wing Blackbirds have returned too!
Today I went up the hill behind our house and looked at Asimina my favorite tree in the whole world. She is so beautiful every season. I imagined it was Summer and I was visiting her,
with Myles, and my forest friends. I imagined she had Paw Paw fruit in her branches and that we would be bringing the harvest to our house.
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.
When it is night time, my friend Jazzbat and his family fly through the sky searching for insects to eat. If I finish my homework early, my mom and dad let me go outside at night and visit Jazzbat. He wears a black beret when I see him hanging from one of Asmina’s branches. Jazzbat of course listens to jazz music so my mom and dad bought some old jazz records from the antique store for me to give as a present.
Jazzbat is a Pipistrelle, more information about him and his family:
After school I went up the hill behind our house to visit the Paw Paw tree. She is so pretty in the winter covered with snow. Her name is Asimina! I read her a story that I wrote about Tuvalu and Wisconsin. I told her that she would love to meet all the beautiful trees in Tuvalu and that she reminds our family of home.
