Bees Bouncing on Blossoms

Apr 26

Today I looked out my window with my nature periscope and counted bees flying from apple tree to pear tree, to cherry tree. The bees float across the sky around the beautiful flowers like little bright flashes of light. The bees make me smile when I see them, I know some of honey bees are probably from Kirby’s bee hives. Bees help fruit trees make fruit by pollinating the flowers, that is why they are so important to farmers.

Have you heard of permaculture? Apple trees are a good example of permaculture.

Can you think of other examples of permaculture?

Solar cider cooker

Sep 27

Dear Diary, today was very exciting we made our own apple cider! We picked our own apples and washed them. We cored the apples, and mashed them to make juice. We finally cooked the apple juice with a SOLAR COOKER to make it safe to drink which is called pasteurization.

How does a solar cooker work? The sun’s rays hit the shiny metal or foil covered card boards and then bounce onto the black pot of apple cider. The heat of the sun cooks the apple juice!

You can help feed families in Africa by buying a solar cooker to send them:
