The Accelerated School garden is blooming with sunflowers! The flowers brought some beautiful color to the garden and the students were thrilled by their size. We also spotted the first signs of summer crops on some cherry tomato plants. This was an exciting treat as there were enough for each student to pick their own! The tomatoes were juicy and ripe with flavor.
To prepare for more summer and fall crops the students stripped the beds of weeds and planted squash and cucumber seedlings along new marigolds. In a couple months when the students return to school the garden should be ripe with vegetables!
