The Greenhouse

While we're building outside, our plants are busy growing in the greenhouse. Before school got out, students started seeds. They planted corn, radishes, basil, squash, peas, carrots, lettuce, spinach, chard, tomatoes and cauliflower. In the picture above you can see the peas, carrots, lettuce and squash (from left to right) all starting to grow.

Robin brought over raspberry plants from her garden (below left) and more zucchini and pumpkin starts. Loon Lake Gardens and Pottery donated garlic starts (below right) and flowers for the school courtyard. Some of the corn, squash and tomatoes that the students started can be seen on the left side of the picture with the garlic. Although it's late in the season, we started some seeds of chamomile, basil, tomatoes, white pumpkins, and cilantro (far bottom left). On the right side of the seeds we started are some of the zucchini plants, jalepeno and habanero plants.
