Corner Garden Highlights - Summer 2015 by Becky Pelton
Here’s an update on what we are growing and how it's doing as of early August:
  1. Brussel Sprouts were planted inside by first and fourth grade students and later transplanted to garden by second and third grade students. By late July we began seeing holes in the leaves due to cabbage worms eating them. We'll see how they fare.
  1. Carrots were carefully planted in the garden by fourth grade students. Carrots are doing great. The pelleted seeds definitely made for less weeding.
  1. Cherry tomatoes were started inside by pre K students and transplanted to the garden by Syana and Mr. Koehring. We planted them inside cages for support. The tomatoes are doing great. We have yogurt cups around bottom of each plant to prevent pests. We also have them covered in row cover to prevent an early late blight.
  1. Garlic was planted in the fall by fourth grade students. We harvested scapes and bulbs by mid July.
  1. Potatoes were planted by pre k students plus volunteers from grades one to three. Potato plants are growing fast. We keep burying the stems as much as we can.
  1. Radishes and turnips were planted directly in the garden at the end of April by pre k, first grade and fourth grade students. They were harvested by end of the school year by pre k, first grade and fourth grade students. We are excited to announce we have successfully "double-cropped" this growing season. After we harvested the radishes and turnips, we planted cabbage. The cabbage is growing but slowly being munched by the same critter that's eating the Brussel sprouts.
  2. Rhubarb was harvested by pre k students and fourth grade students and has been throughout the summer
  1. Squash was planted on hills by second and third grade students. The best part was creating the hills for the squash to climb. Two of the five hills are blooming with squash.
  1. Sunflowers were planted by kindergarten students. Two out of sixteen sunflower seeds planted sprouted and are growing steadily.

Other garden tasks completed by elementary students: weeding
