With the changing of the seasons comes the time for new starts in the garden.
Students at Melrose Avenue Elementary started seeds during the rainy days and finally had an opportunity to get those sprouted seeds in the ground.
We also learned the importance of keeping our garden plants well fed so spent class time getting fresh, nutrient rich soil into the ground.
Using the knowledge we learned regarding life cycle of a plant, we let our garden broccoli go to seed so we could see first hand the process from start to finish – seed, sprout, leafy, flowering and back to seed.
We were also able to enjoy the fruits of our labor via a carrot and tomato snack. Yum!
