We harvested a lot of carrots during our fieldtrip to our community garden plot last week. Today we sketched and wrote about harvesting carrots. Then we washed and prepared them for freezing. We are going to work with a local chef to turn our harvest into a delicious meal in the near future.
Today we got out our tape measures and measured how tall we are in centimeters. Then we recorded our answers on the Smartboard. We are getting ready to measure the sunflowers in the garden this afternoon.
We took all our corn, tomato, cucumber and sunflower seedlings to the Palliser Height plot at the Yara Community Gardens. We spent the afternoon, planting, doing a scavenger hunt, and journaling. By the end of the afternoon, the entire garden was planted!
We spent the morning sorting through a year’s worth of vermicomposting. We pulled out the remaining worms and collected 3 buckets of nutritious compost for our plants!
