A class from our onsite daycare has adopted the radishes and a row of beans. Following is an e-mail from one of our garden volunteers and mom:
This morning the kids planted the green beans and radishes. They did a great job and had a lot of fun. They also had fun rolling down the big hill! The beans worked really well because the seeds were bigger and they did the "poke and pat" method -- although that's probably not official gardening terms...it worked well for the children!
Thanks to all of the Adopt-a-Crop volunteers we're well on our way to having the garden planted. Just waiting for that last chance of frost and for the soil to warm up more before putting in the tomatoes, eggplant, melons, and few more other veggies.
