Room 16 had a great time at our amazing garden. Thanks to Mr. Rogers for helping us plant carrots and lettuce. He watered and we raked and mixed compost into the dirt. Then we sprinkled seeds into the rows. At the end of our planting time, we made sure our beautiful garden was trash free.

Today Room 16 checked McKinley’s Octopus’ Garden. We noticed that our lettuce seeds were sprouting. The lettuce had little leaves. We could not see the carrots yet, maybe next time.

YAHOO!!! We got “newborn lettuce”! We tried our first piece of school grown lettuce. It was a little bit bitter, but it was exciting to try the lettuce for the first time. The carrots’ leaves were sprouting, but you could not eat them. We can’t wait to try the carrots.

DEEEEEE-LI-CIOUS! Room 16 just got back from the garden. We just ate the best lettuce. It tastes so fresh. We hope to be able to make a salad sometime soon. We appreciate Mr. Rogers for watering our plants and helping them grow. We hope we can invite him to our home-grown salad party in the near future.
