Warm season or cool, Lexington?

This week at Lexington Primary we learned about warm season and cool season crops. We explored our garden and talked about some of the warm season crops that have been growing like pumpkin, watermelon, and tomatoes. Then we worked on amending our soil for cool season sowing of leafy greens. 

At the end of class we harvested all of the red tomatoes we could find for a warm season celebration- garden bruschetta! We used cool season garlic, warm season tomatoes, and warm season perennial basil. 

Happy harvesting,
