In this, the busiest time of the year at the school, we will likely not be going into the kitchen. But there are things to look forward to... My cooking club in the summer.
The good news is we sold most of our tomato plants, and a good number of our extra pepper plants. Inside the classroom the students helped me prepare for the herb workshop I taught today. We also dealt with plants we did not grow ourselves.
The career education department is throwing their big banquet this coming Wednesday and I am always asked to provide plant life for the tables. Lately I have gotten in the habit of buying a flat of annuals. It turns into a good lesson. Many annuals are planted together these days not in 6-packs like we use. So I pull out my garden tool that looks like I am carrying around a hefty knife...
The dry spell at the beginning of the week allowed us to get out and do some garden clean up of our large flower bed, and we got our potatoes planted. Enough fingerlings to do two twenty foot beds. Photos were taken, but camera is at the school. It was a good job for having team work... digging fork loosen, shovel dig, add compost, digging fork mix, hand trowel plant potato... repeat.
Sadly we had to move some plants I didn't plan on moving, so now my catnip is in a pot, some sage in the flower bed, and several bulbs transported to new homes, but when water is leaking into one's classroom... what can one do?
so yes, no kitchen time. we are busy.
