What I learned at the Farmer's Market
Parker's Kindergarten had a field trip to the Farmer's Market on Friday and I got to help out but forgot to bring my camera. The class split into groups and did an A-Z scavenger hunt and we actually sort of found something for every letter. Quality produce was a stretch for Q as was eXcited children for X but hey...we only had 40 minutes. lol
I talked to a man who was selling big nice pumpkins and he said that he usually starts them from seed indoors in early July and lets them get a good start and then plants them outside.
Harvest is 90-120 days depending on the variety. Pretty easy to grow. Will grow anywhere on earth except for Antartica. :)
