We're running out of time!
It grows under the ground.
It grows w/o a sound.
They're purple, pink and while.
Delicious when you bite....
This week I scheduled all three Kinder classes out to the garden to plant potatoes!!
I was prepping the soils today and I was flummoxed that the whole cycle has come around again.
It is so wonderful.
Last Fall 8th grade hauled our compost to the Kinder potato bed.
It has lain there since, covered with straw.
The soils I turned today were rich and friable.
We prepare for the kids by rolling out a long pad for them to kneel on.
Each kid gets one spud and a hand trowel.
Kind of stingy, but still challenging.
The other two stations are a read aloud station (teacher),
and a compost bug exploration station (sorry bugs!)
Room 108 arrives at 11:15.
If you can help out,
come to the garden a few minutes early so we can get organized.
Room 105 visits at 11:20 Wednesday,
and Room 107 visits at 1:15 on Friday.
Wednesday Night is Garden Night. It is a delightful and fruitful time together,
without which we could never, never keep up such a beautiful place. It goes from 5:00 until dark.
Thursday, June 6, we hope to finally take 2nd grade, Room 111 to the riverbank to explore its wonders in Spring. We leave at 1:00 and return at 3:00. It is a walking trip.
If you can assist, please come a few minutes early to strategize.
Friday, June 7, is Recycler's Luncheon, wherein we will serve our hard working Captains pizza, fruit, garden salad, and juice. They have done a great job all year,
and have been asking about this luncheon since the last one in November!.
I usually start prepping food at 10:30 and someone fetches the first pizzas at 11:00, all in the Conference Room. Please come and experience these very funny and responsible kids.
