Transplanting and Harvesting!

We spent this week transplanting out the rest of our seedlings that we had started under the grow lights in the classroom.  This included tomatoes, marigolds, kale, lettuce, cucumbers, spaghetti squash, gourds, bok choy, and our herbs (parsley, arugula, dill, thyme, rosemary, oregano, chives).
Some lettuce that has been transplanted
into the garden (as well as some that
was direct sowed)! We're so impressed
with how well the garden is growing!

We were also fortunate enough to have our first big harvest! The students were so excited to see all of their hard work pay off in the form of wonderfully crisp and tasty radishes! The foods class was excited to try different recipes with the radishes including roasted radishes, fresh raw radishes with hummus as well as a salad with radish greens!  
This is a quick view of our radishes from seed to harvest!
Students have been working really hard on finishing up the irrigation system for the garden as well as creating signs for their gardens.  We're hoping to get it all done for the arts/music/gardening showcase this Friday (16th) at 12:30pm. Will give more updates this week!

Happy gardening!
