Some highlights for the garden explorers were sprinkler time, collecting soil from different areas around the farm, painting with vegetables and fruits, play time/exploration in the woods,and feeding the chickens! The farmers for a week got to learn about how much soil can do for us and the different components of soil. They particularly enjoyed the soil test experiment they did where they mixed soil with some water and dish soap and watched it separate.
It was definitely a hot and humid day, but we all enjoyed the day and got lots of time in the shade and with the sprinkler.
Both groups made hummus for snack! We dipped carrots and watermelon radishes into it. Here is the recipe if you want to make it at home:
1 can chickpeas
3/4 C tahini
3 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 C coriander/cilantro/parsley
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
