The 5th grade classes planted a few types of lettuce, basil, and radish in the planter boxes in the schoolyard just before our classes planted vegetables in the classroom for our science unit. I was one of the students from 5-302 who helped harvest the vegetables and I loved it. It reminded me of my family’s farm in Yemen. They grow lettuce, tomatoes, and fruit and I always loved picking them. We delivered them to the cafeteria where our school chef made a huge salad for all of the 5th grade students to share. Some students from class 5-314 and 5-320 also helped by serving the salad, which was very fresh and not moldy, like the vegetables we grew in class!
