Ms. Bihari's class plants quinoa

On Dec. 3, Ms. Bihari's class planted quinoa and sugar snap peas as part of a unit on nutrition. Another 3rd grade class will plant wheat. We discussed that peas are legumes as are beans. We will harvest these cool season crops in the spring.

The children first amended the soil with planting mix and compost. Thanks to Russ for volunteering.
