Ms. Connor's class planted in the garden on April 20. Some students planted cilantro or onions in the salsa garden and others planted lettuce, basil or carrots, companion plants of tomatoes. Some plants that are companions of tomatoes include basil, asparagus, beans, carrots, celery, dill,
lettuce, onions, melon, parsley, peppers, radishes, spinach and thyme. We discussed that companions are friends, that go along together!
The students ate salsa and chips. The three varieties of salsa were salsa rojo, salsa rojo with peaches and mangos and salsa verde. We discussed the meaning of rojo (red) and verde (green) in English.
