On April 6 Ms. Connor's class harvested carrots, peas and lettuce from the Peter Rabbit Garden. These became the centerpiece of a colorful salad. Some of the carrots were purple and white! Some of the students peeled carrots to add to the salad. We also added blueberries to the salad!
The main lesson focused on planting a salsa garden. We discussed the ingredients and the students wrote about them in their garden journals. After learning the proper way to plant a tomato and some students planted tomato seedlings. Others planted basil and cilantro seedlings. We discussed the fact that basil and tomatoes are companions, aka friends, in the garden and grow well together.
