Growing Carrots by Fernando

Growing carrots is fun! The seeds of carrots are very tiny. Some people use sand to help bury down the seeds. Carrots need dirt and space to grow. Don’t bury the seeds too deep. You should plant carrots in the spring or fall because the weather is cool. Some people use carrots for carrot juice. You can eat them plain. Some people use carrots for carrot cake. I like that! Certainly planting carrots is fun.Image

ImageHave you eaten Swiss chard? It’s yummy! The seeds look like little rocks. You need to plant the seeds one foot apart. It grows up out of the ground and has leaves. We can cook the leaves or cut them and eat them fresh. Other names for Swiss chard are silver beet, Roman kale, and strawberry spinach. Swiss chard is awesome!
