pH lessons and fall veggies!

Today we learned about the pH scale and acids and bases. Most plants like a neutral soil. We explored the garden and got to see all the beautiful fall veggies! This broccoli is weathering the latest heat wave.

This bed contains swiss chard, giant purple mustard, romaine, and kohlrabi which love the cool, short days of fall and winter. In the background is a butternut squash which thrives in summer; it is still hanging on during these last few hot days of the year.

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
