Mixed green salad class

I was surprised to return from the holiday, to see the school garden thriving, well, parts of it.  The squash leaves had all died back, but the squash remained.  The snap peas became so heavy, full of pods, it broke the homemade trellis and hung down the side of the bed.  The various types of salad greens we had planted weeks before break, were ready to pick.

I arranged with the teacher to make a salad before lunch, on Friday.  Starting with a reminder of what we had grown, I helped the children pick a leaf from each of the different greens.  Some leaves were big, some small, some spicy, and some mild.  I asked them to try each one, noting the different flavors.

The different varieties were:

mizuna

arugula

romaine

spinach

leaf lettuce

cress

We were also able to harvest the snap peas!
