Tasting Lettuce with Prek | Sullivan


Today the Sullivan prek-ers gleaned from the garden. We saw where the lettuce grew, picked purple and romaine lettuce, talked about the differences (colors, shapes, size, flavor) and tasted it together. Most of the kids prefered romaine but were willing to try both! During our short garden tour, some kids enjoyed one-finger-touching the different things in the garden — fuzzy borage, curly kale and fluffy yarrow!
