September began with a long-term project called Noticing Journals, where each month, the children can meander in the garden as they respond to the question, "What do you notice in the garden today?" Over time, these sheets will be made into their own personal booklets that allow them to see the changes that can occur in a garden throughout time.
After our recording what we noticed in the gardens, the children began to harvest the beans!
On another occasion, the children were able to learn about root vegetables and harvest beets! After harvesting, a beet was cut into pieces for everyone to try. Most did not like the taste, except for Charley who said, "I love beets!"
And finally, the children learned about planting cool season veggies, like broccoli, as well as planting seeds of cover crops!
Here, the children are prepping to plant broccoli starts. We dug holes as big as we could-so big our entire fist could fit inside!
