The students first planted potatoes and red onions! The red onions are "Pointe Coupee" Red Onions which are from heirloom seeds that date back 200 years. They were once a big export to Cuba.
This week the students planted a "Pizza Garden". All the vegetables planted can go on a pizza; some of the students and teachers said "no eggplant on my pizza"! They are hoping everything comes to fruit by the end of the year so they can sample their harvest.
Over the summer the tubs will be covered and new plants will be started in the Fall!
