Today was our last visit to the Garden. There were weeds to pull, vegetables to tend to, and even worms had to be feed. This has been a fun and rewarding experience and I hope you felt the same way. Since this is our last garden blog for the year, please blog your thoughts about this experience as well as any suggestions for next year. Do not forget to visit our garden next year and see what may be growing in there.
Oh, if you were one of the lucky ones to get a turnip, please let the class know how you ate it and what it taste like.
We have been ridding our garden of these pests the last 2 visits. It is sometimes hard to distinguish a weed from a real plant or flower. I think you guys are doing a terrific job of getting to the roots. I can see more dirt than greenary!
Here are "before" shots of our garden bed when it was infested with weeds. In a couple of weeks, "after" shots will be put up so we can compare and admire all the sweat and hard work in put in.
Ugg! Look at the roots! Some are long and tough to get out.
We had a fun time weeding through our beds today. What are some discoveries you made today? Mrs. Barrows told us about the new seeds she has and what we will be growing next. What do you think about our newest additions to the beds?
We had a chance to pick some radishes last week. We tasted them in class. What do you think about home grown vegetables compared to store bought? What did you think of the taste of the radishes? How about the smell?
We are planting carrots, snap peas, and different kinds of raddishes. Yum! We will be going to the garden every Wednesday to tend to our vegetables. I wonder how the Pioneers did it?
Mrs. Barrows will be maintaining and gardening with us on Wednesdays. We are very lucky!
We are ready to plant!
All the students were able to plant their seeds. We will be in the garden each Wednesday and hopefully we will be reporting on what is growing or not growing. Please blog your thoughts on this process. What do you think of your gardening experience? What have you observed? What is your predication of what might grow first?
