Summer of Solutions Hartford

Our first flowers started to bloom!



And our basil was ready to harvest so we picked the leaves


And made pesto


Our zucchini plants were huge and ready to pick. Have you ever seen such a large and beautiful zucchini? (or a cuter kid?)


With all of our gorgeous zucchini, we made zucchini muffins and taught the kids that vegetables can be delicious!


We also had lettuce, radishes, peppers, and tomatoes ready to harvest


lots and lots of tomatoes!


So we took our tons and tons of vegetables and ate a lot of them off the vine because they were too delicious to bring inside. Of the vegetables that survived, we made a salad that was 100% grown and picked by us.


Everyone had a fun and delicious week at the Annie Fisher School garden. No vegetables survived.
