It’s difficult to keep up with the garden this time of year. Our three classes had their hands full in their last week in the garden with a variety of tasks:
1. Turning the compost bin. Today it had a strong apple-cider vinegar smell from all the apples composted from school lunch last week. We mixed it up with spent snap pea plants to provide more breathability.
2. Harvesting radish seeds. It takes forever but we will never have need to buy them again!
3. Planting watermelon & pumpkin seeds in starter trays.
4. Making floral bouquets. We have an abundance of wildflowers growing in the garden so a different class this week got the opportunity to make bouquets for the front office.
5. Harvesting rutabagas, leeks, red & green cabbage. We left them in the front office for the teachers to take home.
Lunch provided an abundance of apples and baby carrots to add to the compost bin. At this rate the garden is going to need a few more bins!
Next week we begin with three new classes for a seven week session.
