September’s Harvest of the Month was Corn. The garden class spent a week learning about how corncobs are the seeds of the corn plant, how they are pollinated, the types of corn and how the corn industry works.
We also spent some time trying some of these delicious recipes:
175 out of 200 students couldn’t get enough of this recipe!!!
96 out of 115 students were wild about this salad!!
Harvest time is upon us!! You will notice the garden is changing. Classes have been participating in some intensive harvesting as we prepare for our fall planting. We have harvested all of our pumpkins (14 in total!!) and tons of tomatoes, kale, swiss chard, and basil. All of our harvested vegetables were used last week by our 2nd grade classes to prepare some garden fresh salads served up in the cafeteria during lunch. We served:
1. Chop or slice tomatoes. Cut basil into strips.
2. Mozzarella chees can be cut into cubes, strips or Small discs.
3. Toss or drizzle tomatoes, basil & mozzarella in the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt.
