Planting Corn in our School Garden

 We are very fortunate to have a school garden. It's located behind the school in a nice patch of land that gets just the right amount of sunlight and shade for eggplant, peas, lettuce, potatoes, and corn. Students were give a few kernels of Silver Queen Corn and told to plant it an inch beneath the soil. As you can see, they were very precise in their measurement.  We will check on it in a few weeks and monitor the growth of our plants.
This is the Chets Creek garden where Spring planting has already begun.
