It was a blustery day at the Hotchkiss K-8 today, snowed even. Mark and I brought in soil, cells, watering cans and name tags for the tomato project. The 1st graders had the opportunity to plant a 3rd generation of seeds that have been student-saved and farm-grown. In August, when the fruit matures, it will be donated to area food banks, senior center, and Kids Pasta Project- www.kidspastaproject.org
3rd generation seeds
We left the newly-seeded trays in the K-8 greenhouse. In May the seedlings will be planted on the farm.
