The Garden at Oswegatchie School is a sustainable organic garden where children get a hands on experience learning where their food comes from while developing an appreciation and respect for nature. The Garden will be a learning center to teach gardening as well as incorporating art, music, literature, math and science. It is a place where children are encouraged to join in and participate in the process of creating, developing and maintaining the garden!

Salad Anyone?

So only after 29 days some of our lettuce is ready to harvest! I'm going to check with Dianne Houlihan in the school kitchen and see if she would like to start serving some. The tango salad mixes are coming along nicely as well. They seem to be a little slower growing. The radishes have also popped up nicely.

Still waiting on the kale and beets. This garden project is teaching me patience. I know everything will grow in it's own time.
We are still buzzing with activity in the perennial bed. Bees and butterflies are still stopping by to enjoy the flowers. Our caterpillar friends are still happily munching away on the parsley. It looks like they may be getting ready to spin their chrysalis.

We have another tentative work party scheduled for the Garden Club members Saturday October 5 at 9:00 am weather permitting. We will be trimming around the beds, cleaning out the tomato and pepper beds and getting them ready for garlic. Please let me know if you can make it.
