This past Friday, our 1st-4th graders spent the morning with our Master Gardeners, Rick Skinner and Carmella Mazzotta, and UDC’s Sandra Farber and Mary Farrah harvesting some of our ripe-and-ready vegetables.

Aniya and Shad pull out some carrots from our garden:

Aliyah picked a green pepper:

Saniya and Zeima found some eggplant and snipped two off very carefully with shears:

And Rasheed, RoVaughn, and Isaiah harvested some corn.  It took a lot of muscle and courage (and a little help from Rick) to pull the corn from its stalk, tear away the husk, and to take a little bit of a bite.

With the help of some students, Program Director Ruth found a funny cucumber that grew around the chain-link fence:

“We harvested all those!” – Zeima

As a special afternoon snack, the students made a salad with all that they harvested:
