This morning was warm and a bit wet after evening showers….just the right time to plant beans and beets for a September harvest. We plan to flood the salad bar with pickled beets and beans. (They were a big hit at lunch time last year. )If all goes well, we’ll hold some community pickling bees at the start of school.
Meanwhile, the summer campers this morning compared seeds and guessed which was which, beet or bean, before planting them. In pairs, they planted two rows of each vegetable. It will be interesting for them to see which is the root vegetable when they harvest in the fall. After planting, campers harvested sweet crispy sugar snap peas. Some of these same kids had planted them during After School Science in the Garden Club. Where does your food come from? These kids have a good idea.
