2 Seasons in the Garden

At Lexington this week we learned about the two planting seasons we have in the garden, Cool season and Warm season! Each kid got a card with a vegetable or fruit found in gardens on one side and a season on the back. I named a type or weather and then all the kids with a plant that grew in the corresponding climate would stand up and dance while the rest of the kids would fall and “die” as a plant would. At the end of class we collected some cool season plants, basil kale and carrots, to make a pesto dipping sauce for our garden carrots!
