BEWARE BEWARE: Munchie Cuteness is Back!!

The sun is out and so is our lovely school gardens blog! This summer we are featuring a "Garden of the Week" and this week we are featuring Thunderbird Elementary maintained by the staff and kids at Thunderbird Daycare.

Our first harvest was on July 14th! We harvested garlic, potatoes, snap peas and kale. The kids ate some delicious potato salad and kale salad for lunch. What a better way to eat healthy than straight from the garden!

Harvests:

Three times the charm! The trio of potatoes!
