Calvert – Artichoke Hearts and Seedling Starts

Hello Garden Friends,Calvert - May 13, 2016 - 2 of 2

Last week at Calvert, I had the 1st graders take a last look at the garden before their garden classes finished up for the year. We took in the sweet smells of sage and the strikingly electric purples of the artichoke flower. We planted some corn, bean, and squash seeds for next year and also culminated the class in a compost relay – turning the bins and then taking handfuls of soil to the areas of the garden where they had planted their seeds. All in all it was another beautiful day in the garden.

Until next week!
