Strawberries are wild at warm Alta Loma

Young Alta Loma students return to their garden for a garden full of strawberries – like strawberry land! There were so many strawberries to spare at Alta Loma, we will say the bugs are getting a great bite from these juice little reds, too. What did garden students learn on Friday morning? Step 1: Be gentle. Step 2: Hold the stem, then pick. Step 3: Wash strawberries. Step 4: Enjoy.

Red radishes were also up for grabs. We cut up some and everyone got to try a little piece. Some students like the burst of spice that radishes gave, some did not. At least, they all gave the radishes a little try.
