Harvesting for Market!

This fall and summer the gardening classes on Tuesday got to do a lot of harvesting for the market. We100_0028 are still harvesting broccoli, carrots, spinach, kale, and lettuce even in the depths of winter thanks to the hoop houses and our frost hardy plants. We  regularly brought a scale with us to class and weighed all of our produce at the end. Peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, oh my! We usually had close to 100 pounds of produce, and sometimes more! Students enjoyed cutting and arranging flowers, snacking as they worked, and doing math to total up our harvests. We harvested okra, ground cherries, cherry tomatoes, tomatillos, squash, cucumbers, kiwis, carrots, peppers, herbs, zinnias, cosmos, and much more! Students learned about the variety and bounty of foods growing in the fall garden. We hope that you made it to the market!
