June was exciting and was filled with lots of planting. The morning family education women came out and built beds and planted plenty of squash, corn, beans, zucchini, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupe, watermelon, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, and cilantro. While planting, we also realized that there is a lot of purslane growing in their plot which is a great beneficial weed. It’s succulent and edible and can be used as a salad, stir fried, or cooked like spinach. YUM! It also contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable plant. Very nutritious!
To finish up the month of June we worked with the 1st and 2nd graders to build a herb spiral. They loved getting dirty with all the sand, dirt and rocks! Inside the herb spiral we are going to plant rosemary, basil, thyme, and cilantro.
