As you can see, the garden is already an outdoor classroom for returning students. I accompanied a Kindergarten as they searched for tomatoes and peppers the other day.
They made many other observations in the 45 minutes that they spent walking around the garden.Their sense of wonder brings me back to the small miracles I miss all the time, just not being that close to the ground anymore! They were great at figuring out how many tomatoes they needed if they were harvesting twice as many ‘as they were old.’ After their harvesting was finished, they grazed on the abundant fall raspberries.
The peppers and tomatoes were given to our chef, Kim, to be used for making chili and for the salad bar. YUM!
