Last week we started our harvest at ALC just in time for Thanksgiving by thinning out our luscious lettuce patch. Luckily some of our seedlings from several weeks ago were ready to be planted so we can continue to plant for the changing seasons. For a pre-Thanksgiving celebration, Kelly prepared some phenomenal tabbouleh!
This week Marisa joined us as we continued our lettuce harvest and dug up some beets too! The fruits of our labor were distributed to lingering teachers and administrators as well as the students. We used a small portion to create a light salad with green apples, shallots, and carrots. The salad was tossed with olive oil, pomegranate red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, honey – perfect for a sunny afternoon in the garden!
