Calvert – Pink Flowers and Red Carrots

Hello Garden Friends,IMG_20170501_100328076

Yesterday at Calvert, the 1st grade students and I celebrated our last day of garden class together with carrots and songs. Everybody got to pick out and rinse off their own carrot to eat. Some students were skeptical of the red color of the carrots, after all, new things can be scary! However, many were delighted to see that the inside was a familiar orange color.

In the photos, below I have documented one of the most gratifying surprises coming out of the garden. WILDFLOWERS!

These flowers are the gift that just keep giving. These successive blooms have been gracing the garden with so many pollinators and colorful flowers. I’m glad we dedicated a whole bed to them!

Until next time,

Farmer Jeff
