Successful start into the third garden season!
With a lot of dedication and a considerable amount of anticipation, the students started their now third gardening season. They were able to draw on their experience from previous years
If you want to find freshly harvested kohlrabi on the buffet in the refectory for a longer period of time, then it should be planted in a staggered manner. The first harvest is due in a few days. There are children here and there who watch the plants grow almost every day

One realisation: rocket and tomatoes can sow themselves and then grow magnificently. This was by no means the plan, but everyone was able to learn something
For the summer festival, lovage and chives have already been harvested, dried and prepared in small jars for sale. Rosemary will follow. We will also dry some of our sage so that we can brew delicious sage tea in the groups in autumn/winter

Until then, the potatoes have plenty of time to grow and our students have time to gain more experience and enjoy the school garden.
