Did you know that these pretty flowers are edible? They are called day lilies. We have 2 different colors in our gardens, and they taste a little different from each other. They taste like lettuce, with a little sweetness 🙂

This plant is okra. The vitamins in okra help to keep your joints working smoothly so that you can run and jump and play!

Come and see the rest of the pretty, and tasty plants we have. Maybe you can even taste test some of our tomatoes, cucumbers, or zucchini!
