Our Whittaker gardens are in bloom! Stop by anytime to carefully pick what’s ripe and ready to be eaten. You’ll find a sign showing what you can pick and take home. Join us in the garden on Fridays at 11am to chat about what’s growing and do a nature STEAM activity.
We’re Ready to be Picked!

What’s Flowering in the Garden?
Many plants have flowers before or during their food production period. Fruits, like tomatoes and melons, grow their fruit from the area they grow their flowers. Onions are different. They’re a vegetable, and the part we eat grows underground, while the flowers grow on the top of a tall stalk.
What else is happening in the garden?
The squash have started to grow! They’re fall plants, so they aren’t ready to be picked yet, but you’ll be able to see the fruit starting to form.
Can you see that material inside of the bee hole? That’s evidence that a bee has been building inside! Check for more bee activity next time you stop by.
A frog decided to come and visit our rain garden! Many different animals will use our rain garden as a habitat. Can you think of any animals that like to live in shallow water?
