Palmquist Garden Is Alive! by auntkristy

This morning I spent a few lovely hours in the garden at Palmquist Elementary School,  with parents, teachers and administrators from the school. We all our gardening gloves on, tools in hand, and by the end of the session, slightly sore muscles and a feeling of community. The garden is a labor of love for Mark, the fourth grade teacher who also is the Organic Garden Guru–and if the kids who worked there today are typical of those who will work the plots during the year, they’ll have fun and learn about where food comes from, plus get to eat some the of the bounty right on site.

I’ll take photos next time–and we can watch the garden grow!

Hi Guys–I wanted to put you in the loop with the Friends of Fire Mountain
Garden Exchange–my husband, Jay Scrivener, usually sends off these emails
when someone has garden news. This is the place I mentioned where we bought
winter tomatoes!

El Plantio
1322 San Pasqual Rd


Out 78 to the end, turns into Lincoln, right on Ash, becomes San
Pasqual. about 2 miles

Very nice little nursery, they have winter tomaotes right now (getting
root bound in 4″) but supposed to fruit into February (cherries only)

Really nice and helpful staff

Palmquist sells fruit and veggies after school on Fridays? How cool is that? I’ll tuck that away as useful info. Great!
