Pacific High

Pacific High is the Alternative High School here in Sitka. Today, some of the members of their cooking class came out to the garden to pick vegetables for their kitchen. Now, as you know, the U-Pick Garden is actually closed for the year, but the garden keeps pumping out produce, and I am happy to support schools that want to use local produce, so I said, "Come on over!"

 Here's Mandy and the boys....

We picked Kale, Cabbage, Parsley, Rhubarb, Leeks, Broccoli, Celery, Tomatoes, Lemon Sorrel, Cucumbers, Radishes, Cauliflower, Carrots, Swiss Chard, and Sunflower Seed Heads....

 When we picked the carrots I let them take the big ones and then nestled the little ones into tubs of dirt....

I have special plans for them later in the month.

After the kids left I headed back to the beach.....there are still a few fish left....
