Finding Treasures at Markham Middle School

Today’s minimum day left us with a few productive hours during the after-school garden club. We prepared beds for planting next week.

Once the hard work was done we foraged for some tasty garden treasures. Among the bucketfuls of radishes we also discovered this beauty.

This tomatillo was easily recognized and quickly swooped up by students who noticed that it is an important ingredient in green salsas. Yum!

Next week, the fall planting officially begins. We will kick off the season with carrots, beets, lettuce, kale, chard, garlic, onions, a variety of beans and more radishes!
