Ms. Palo's Class in the Garden

Today some of Ms. Palo's 4th graders reviewed companion planting, some native plants and planted seedlings in the edible garden. Companions are friends, so companion planting is planting plants that are friendly to each other-i.e. grow well together. The companions that we have in the Peter Rabbit Garden are lettuce, carrots and radishes.

The students replanted kale and broccoli which will hopefully grow well this time of the year and not be troubled by the cabbage moth caterpillars. They also planted more lettuce in the Peter Rabbit Garden and calendulas in the Butterfly Garden. Calendulas are edible flowers.
