Giant City Garden Harvest

Giant City's School Garden is winding down. With all of the rain and cloudy weather, the plants seem to be finishing up their bounty. Today students will enjoy cucumbers, green peppers, and cantaloupe on the salad bar. 
Mrs. Apgar's second grade will investigate the pumpkins that last year's class planted. Weighing and measuring pumpkins, and then counting seeds will keep the young scientists busy!
