From seed to burger...the incredible journey! Keeping kids fingers dirty in the schoolyard!
Project Pickle is a Backyard Cooperative partnership with Solefood Street Farms , the Delta School District , and Kwantlen University
Wow!! A dish that didn't have cucumber in it! Fresh roasted corn, nectarine, Roma and Golden toms, Cilantro, hot Potugese pepper, green and red onion.
It has been a challenging summer with irrigation being the major obstacle this year.
Another box of Project Pickle cucumbers makes it to the South Delta Food Bank this morning.
This will probably be the last harvest of cucumbers from Richardson elementary. Greens will be seeded the next couple of weeks.
If the heat wasnt enough, the English Bluff school farm has had other challenges. The expanse of the schoolyard at this school makes it ideal for dogs and dog walkers.
Lots of colour in this backyard bed.
This photo shows three of the 4 beds at McCloskey. The bed not shown is full of strawberies. These other three are mostly cucumbers, chard and Kale.
After a long day of trying to keep our farms watered, there is no better place to relax than on the deck at sundown. Love it!
This my "tumbler" basket. Lots of early sweet fruit. AKA the snack bush, it is almost impossible to go a day without chowing down on these gems.
One of my kids even made me a can of cola for the hot summer! In the foreground.... a crafty piece from some really talented farmers and artists!
