On the last day of school we did some final harvesting and work in the garden. Garden club kids got to pull radishes, carrots, beets, lettuce, kale, and anything else that was ready for eating.
We had quite a haul! I can’t get over the gorgeous and varied colors of root vegetables.
We loaded it all up into the wagon and went around the school bringing it to some of the classes that planted. Kids got to choose something to taste.
Before making our final exit, we made some veggie bouquets as goodbye gifts for some of the office staff.
The rest got washed and packaged up to deliver to Plant a Row for the Hungry. We had a great year and are looking forward to more in 2016/17!
Lots of stuff making great progress in the garden this spring! Check it out…
Or look at individual photos this way:
Pollinators. The reason we plant to flowers! (Besides that we love flowers)
This Salvia was transplanted from my home garden. Butterflies and hummingbirds love it.
Gourds starting to climb! These are for a 4th grade project next year.
Tomatoes waiting to ripen
Mystery Melons! These sprouts came up in my compost pile and we transplanted them here.
Our little herb bed has parsley, dill, basil, stevia, lovage, thyme, lavender, and others
Lots of Lettuce

Raspberries – waiting for them to ripen!
We built these trellises just before school let out.
