Harvest day! May 29, 2012

Filed under: Garden stories — juliesbradley @ 9:44 pm

Today was a big day at Hiawatha Elementary because the classes harvested lettuce and radishes.  First we cut the lettuce from the plants and pulled the radishes from the soil.  Then we washed the lettuce and put the lettuce in clean pillow cases.  Next we took turns spinning the lettuce in the pillow cases to dry the lettuce (10 seconds each person).  We took the lettuce and radishes back to our rooms and had a delicous snack!  It was really good!

Welcome to our website.  We worked very hard to build this website.  We are 4th graders.  Come back and see our website again.

 Healthy food:  We as 4th graders eat healthy snacks every week.   They give us snacks for gardening.  Our teachers tell us where the food comes from and how it grows.  We use it as an example of what comes from gardening.   Most of our snacks come from plants.  Some of these snacks come from the store.  Last time we ate some fruits and vegetables (spinach and strawberries).  The bloggers favorite so far was yogurt and granola.  Our second favorite was spinach and strawberries.  We also ate some carrots.  It tasted so  good!  Please come to our website again!

An interview with Mr. Wyatt May 15, 2012

Filed under: Interviews — juliesbradley @ 7:53 pm

Have you ever had a garden? 

Mr. Wyatt:  No, I have not had a garden. 

What is the hardest part about teaching kids about the garden at school?

Mr. Wyatt:  The hardest part about teaching kids about gardening is that I’ve never had a garden before so it’s all brand new to me too.   So I’m learning along with the kids.

What is your favorite vegetable?

Mr. Wyatt:  Green beans. 

Is there any vegetable you don’t like?

Mr. Wyatt:  I do not like carrots.  I just don’t like the taste.

What don’t you like about gardening?

Mr. Wyatt:  It takes a lot of time and it’s hard to keep the weeds out.

What will you be doing this summer?

Mr. Wyatt:  I work at the golf course so I’ll be playing golf and traveling.  I’m going to Washington D.C.

Thank you very much for letting me interview you.

Mr. Wyatt:  You’re very welcome.
