The Kindergarteners’ patience was rewarded this spring when they harvested the carrots they had planted 5 months earlier. The tiny ball-shaped ones (Tonda di Parigi variety) turned out to the be the sweetest, but the children also marveled at the purple, white and yellow carrots. Each carrot surfaced to a chorus of “oooohs” and “ahhhhs” — so great to hear!
As always the students begged for seconds while Ecology Club teacher sponsor Mr. Chicoine chopped carrots as quickly as he could to keep up with the demand! Perched on the tree stump seating, they finished their garden time with a lesson from Ecology Club teacher sponsor Ms. Hobgood about the newest garden tenants: mushroom logs!
