We recently received an amazing report from a first-time Veggie U class in Barberton, Ohio. Ms. Bruzda had a lot of wonderful things to tell us, but what really caught our attention was this:
If you met an eggplant at a Halloween party, you might say, “Hey, awesome veggie costume!”
But the eggplant would have to reply, “Actually, I’m a fruit.” So would the cucumber, the olive, and the pepper. All fruits. Talk about great costumes!
It’s pretty obvious that we here at Veggie U are rather fond of carrots. We love them so much that we even made one a part of our logo, for Pete’s sake! So we are very excited that, after a summer spent testing and growing, we are now ready to include carrot seeds in our stellar line up of Veggie U veggies. Now all our students can experience the wonders of growing this amazing vegetable in the root viewers that come with every Veggie U Primary Garden.
Searching Pinterest in January for garden ideas can be a dangerous thing!
Sometimes, it’s easy being green. Especially when it’s National Spinach Day!
Here at Veggie U HQ we celebrate Spinach Day every day by sending spinach seeds to classrooms nationwide to grow in their Veggie U Classroom Gardens.
Microgreens might be the hottest trend in “boutique vegetables” and served at the best restaurants, but they are really easy and fun to grow at home. In fact, many of the plants Veggie U students grow in their classroom gardens are actually microgreens.
