Gardening in September

The Fuji apples that grew over the summer were ready to be harvested once we returned to school. At JYC, harvesting means eating! The students all enjoyed the apple slices. They were slightly tart, but delicious.

We also ate lettuce leaves, straight from the garden!

Then we showed the students how to thin the recently planted sprouts. It can be hard to convince them to reduce the number of plants, but it's a good lesson in what plants need to grow well.
