The Harvest!

We had 16 classes come through and help harvest our school garden on September 18!  We had some crops that grew amazingly (beets, carrots, basil) and some crops that grew just OK this year (lettuce, spinach, onions, potatoes).  We also saw what happened when we leave corn on the stalks too long (they dry up) and when you plant them too late in the season (they are still baby corn!!).  We also learned that you can keep old, dried up corn kernels and plant them as seed for next year.  Some classes may take on that experiment for our next growing season 😃

A special thanks to Laura Villeneuve for helping me to manage the crowds :)
