Runner Beans and Yummy Kale–November 1, 2012

First grader, Dylan and fourth grader, Robin worked together and noted a 54° day. It felt cold, windy and sunny. After a session of Tag You’re Fit we picked and ate some Fall kale. We found peas blooming and the radishes and spinach were growing taller (we’ll hoop them soon). We picked late red runner beans and ate them – yum!

We went inside the library and saw pictures of the summer garden and remembered summer vegetables and fruits we grew: strawberries, peas, radishes, carrots, sunflowers, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, watermelons, cucumbers, zucchini and beans. We talked about summer garden paintings for next week.

  • play Tag You’re Fit
  • harvest and eat beans and kale
  • recall fruits and vegetables grown last summer
