A New Season of Food and Farm Lab

The opportunistic students in Food and Farm 101 made good use of the harvestable vegetables from the high tunnel gardens. For those of you who haven’t visited the covered growing space, it was virtually filled to the roof with all kinds of tomatoes! The enclosed spaces was kept at a perfect temperature over the summer to encourage the most growth out of those generous plants. After harvesting a full bucket of green tomatoes, the class decided to try out a recipe for fried green tomatoes. Each student helped by either bringing in ingredients, helping prepare the batter, managing the frying, or sampling the delicious experiment. Everyone chipped in the clean up right as the bell rang at the end of class. You can look for more inventive recipes as the harvest season draws to a close. Pickles are up next!
