Harvesting Mania at Weemes Elementary

After spring break last week the garden at Weemes has a lot of new vegetables to harvest!  Our purple cauliflower has bloomed into enormous heads and our kale, lettuce, greens and herbs are growing all over. After our compost lesson, the kids helped harvest and eat lots of cauliflower and we still had plenty left over for kids to take home and share with faculty and teachers.  What’s more, our tomato and squash plants are showing new green fruits we can harvest in a couple weeks! As the days get warmer, we’re looking forward to lots more fresh veggies each week!
