Finally all that hard work in the garden has paid off with the freshest salad you have ever had (…cue hip hop DJ sample- “FRRRRRRRRESH”).
We harvested 6 kinds of lettuce that have been growing amazingly well. With only a few weeks left of school, we here at the garden are trying to create the most delicious send off possible- by eating and harvesting till the end of June.
We got all thumbs up on this salad right here. We added a bit of fennel, kale, and a light vinaigrette to ensure absolute delight & satisfaction.

It was a rip roaring week of intense sun, random hose cool downs, straw mulching, and even some planting.
We mulched baby onions w/ straw to save them from this amazing heat. Helping out, was our UW volunteer Jamee from the fabulous Pipeline program that connects college students w/ volunteering in local organizations doing sustainability work. She got right down in it.
So yes we had to cool down and this is how we do it. Make it rain!
And w/ the kindergarteners, we opened a coconut that a student’s parent mailed from the US Virgin Islands?!? It’s not quite so easy, but we eventually cracked it and celebrated a little.
And we did MUCH watering! It’s hot!!!!
