Hello Garden Friends,
I spy with my little eye something red that grows under ground and tastes sweet instead of spicy.. what am I?
If you said a beet you are absolutely right! They are growing so well here that I thought I would have the students of each class find the biggest one they could so we could cut it up and share it with the whole class. We had a lesson about democracy as well. Everyone had a different opinion on which beet was the largest so I had the students vote to determine which one we should pull out. Once everyone presented their opinions in a public forum it was clear to see which one was probably the largest (though most of the root resides underground).
Next week I’m hoping we finally get to taste the tomatoes!
