The day after a most welcome rain, the Roosevelt ESP garden smelled so fresh and invigorating. It was a dark roast color, inviting the new start of the day.
This edible school garden is bursting with all sorts of yummy, leafy greens! We harvested a good volume today but the garden still has more to give!
We feasted on a simple salad with two different types of kale, lettuce, radishes, lemon, olive oil, and the ubiquitous pair, salt and pepper.
After eating we explored the garden for a bit, honing in on the fava beans. Daisy and Rosaura got really excited about these for two different reasons. Daisy wanted to make them into a crunchy snack by roasting them and adding chili pepper. Rosaura wanted to give them to her mom to make a soup out of. These two are so inventive! I can’t wait to hear their stories next week on how their dishes went! If the roasted fava beans go well, I’ll have to ask Daisy for the recipe.
