Fall is Here!

With it, new classes and new garden plots! The students are back in school bringing great energy into the garden.

Since we're blessed with LA seasons, the children are having a hard time figuring out what "Fall" crops are (I'm sure most LA adults too!). We have been putting great efforts into teaching them which veggies are great to grow in this season. Additionally, the students have been working hard to planning the layout of their classroom gardens, weeding, laying out new soil and compost, and planting seeds in their classroom gardens. So far, we've planted beets, broccoli, brussell sprouts, turnips, radishes, peas, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, chives, lettuce, blueberries, strawberries (isn't LA weather great?), and kale.

The turnips and peas are already starting to make their way above ground. I'll post pictures of it soon!


Things to Plant in the Fall:

  • beets
  • broccoli
  • onions
  • leeks
  • brussell sprouts
  • turnips
  • radishes

  • cauliflower
