Curry plant

The plant you can see on the picture is often called the « curry plant », for its strong smell really close to curry powder. It is impressive to see how strong a smell can be and that it can remind us of many tastes we know. During Summer, little yellow flowers are supposed to bloom, we can’t wait to see that!

Sage


Here’s a plant that grows between a rosemary bush and the orange thyme. I is not very high ( about 20 or 30 cm) nor does it have a particular smell. But I chose it for its leaves, their colour and their texture. The leaves are not just green, but also have some grey and blue, and are very pale. If you take them in your hands they are soft as velvet.

Rhubarb

lthough tiny at this moment of the year, Rhubarb grows really big in summer. You should want to cook it before eating it because its natural taste is quite sour. It is often used for cooking pies but it can also be stewed or dried in some sort of candy. – Photo by Hannes

Early Spring Frenzy

Our WAWWE class got started on some observations, cleaning, planting, and generally enjoying each other’s presence and the lovely weather outside. We got a bit dirty, planted peonies, sage and mint, learned tool vocabulary and purposed and got some seeds planted for summer. Oh, and dug up piles of dandelions before they take over the universe.

Baby radish

This is my favorite picture from my last trip to the garden: it is a baby radish. There were planted at the beginning of October and a week later, we could already see them coming out; I think it is quite rewarding. I also find interesting to see the evolution between this early stage of the growth and the final state of the radish. Fun fact: I tasted it and it already had a bit of taste! – Text and photo by Gabrielle

The Rose

From Alexandre: I have chosen the picture of a rose, because of the contrast between the green background and the red of the flower. It is gorgeous.

One last dig

Our school year is drawing to a close and we’re probably having one last dig with the students before everyone leaves on their internships. There was more potato hilling, border repair and onion and rhubarb distribution. We hope to see everyone again in the fall.
