Some students then planted tomatoes and basil in the Salsa Garden. Later they will plant cilantro and onions and jalapeno peppers. We had discussed the ingredients in salsa earlier in the garden time. We also discussed the correct way to plant tomatoes and the students wrote about that in their garden journals.
The students ate a colorful salad with peas, carrots, red grapes and lettuce. Sugar snap peas are the Vegetable of the Month at Marquez.
