With a big blue sky and warm breezes blowing through the farm, we had a productive planting day this week! The kids worked with parent volunteers, Master Gardeners and their teachers to dig in and plant our cool season Spring plants. Radishes, kale, swiss chard, broccoli, spinach, onions, lettuces, beets, turnips and carrots were planted in our square foot gardens. We also learned about how much water different plants need and specific information about the plants we planted. Teachers taught the kids about the structure and functions of the plant parts as well.
It was a great day! Look for big, green growth coming soon!
