One of the most exciting things about a garden, is that it is in a continuous state of change! The students at West Vernon are always excited to see what is new and different in the garden each visit!
One of the things we noticed this week, was that several of the plants were past their prime! We discussed the various stages of a plant, and even though we sometimes only eat plants in one stage of their growth, the ultimate goal of any plant was to produce seeds. There was an excellent example of this in one of our broccoli plants that was full of long thin pods. We opened up some pods and examined the tiny, pretty, green broccoli seeds.
