THE GARDEN KITCHEN
Today we visited the Garden Kitchen. We looked at plants that were grown from seeds. We saw a lot of tomatoes, basil, and bush beans. We also saw different varieties of mint like Lemon, Chocolate, and Apple Sage. We got a sample to smell and our Instructor made a cup of tea with the leaves that were left over! We also saw Grape vines with tiny grapes growing on them. They have some fruit trees as well like Apple, Orange, Fig, and an ornamental pomegranate. One of the Volunteers took us around the garden and told us about the different plants and then offered us a plant to take home. I chose a tomato plant that my instructor will be growing for me. I’ll let you know if we get any tomatoes! Eating fresh vegetables from your own garden is very healthy!
We visited The Garden Kitchen this week. We saw lots of different plants. We saw an Apple Tree that had a bunch of small apples on it. We walked around the Garden and saw how they plant vegetables with flowers to help them grow better. One of the Members is making a purple themed garden with purple potatoes, purple tomatoes, and purple bell peppers. That's my kind of garden!
