Today was mostly a garden maintenance day for Ranger Hope at 6th Ave Elementary. In between introducing all her classes to the garden, she planted marigolds, installed a trellis for beans, made signs and amended some areas of the garden with bagged compost.
The kids loved touching the puffy marigold plants!
Trellis for pole beans – and anything else that wants to climb UP!
Hope is so excited to see the new sprouts coming up!! These are baby kales.
Some students observing HOW celery grows.
New signage for the lettuce beds.
We’re incredibly lucky enough to have two established tomato plants at this garden already! Super looking forward to eating fresh cherry tomatoes in a few weeks!
