These pictures are of Mr. Lowery and Mrs. Medrano working with Junior Harvesters planting onions and lettuce. The Junior Harvesters learned that onions were planted at about an inch depth. The lettuce was broadcast and only slightly covered with soil because the seeds need the sun to germinate. The Junior Harvesters then lightly tapped the soil to ensure that the seeds didn't blow away.
Not only will we have a bountiful harvest, our students will learn so much they can teach their parents in their home gardens.
