Week six was an exciting one on the farm! We learned about nutrition, and hosted an Iron Chief competition -in the mud kitchen- Green Earth style! Along with our healthy eating habits, we also learned what is healthy for the earth. We created compost and were able to successfully sort between trash and recycle. During the week, we also made a recycled craft out of old materials. Another favorite was building habitats for the frogs (and toads) that we caught.
In the garden, we found that some of the radishes were ready to harvest. We enjoyed radish and garlic scape dip with crackers. It was delicious! It was really simple to make, too. Just quarter radishes and cut small pieces of garlic scapes. Toss them into a food processor and mix with cream cheese. Ta-Da! Real simple, and it received a rating of thumbs up and satisfied nods from the Nature Rangers. I also heard a “Don’t tell my parents I ate [and enjoyed] this!” So, you never know until you try 🙂
