Harvest Report

Today's final summer garden class was rained out. After the rain Mariah and Mrs. P. were in the garden and harvested as follows:

  • 3 cucumbers (one was overripe and turning yellow)
  • 25 green peppers (including four "icky" spotted peppers)
Total of 9 1/2 pounds today.

There are several crops ready to be harvested when students come back to school next week. There is a head of savoy cabbage, green beans, lettuce, onions, greens and potatoes. Kids will be surprised to see how much has changed over the summer.
