School Garden Success

Hector is one of our school students; he is holding the first carrot that was worth pulling it up to see if it was ready yet.

The students' work in their school garden has also produced several cucumbers, and their tomatoes are coming along. But it is the carrots, which they've never seen growing before, that they are most curious about. We've mentioned several times that the carrot is below ground and the green part above needs to be left alone so the carrot can grow bigger. We might have lost a third of the carrots to their checking to make sure we were right about that. Now maybe they'll believe us.
