Springtime Weather

Springtime Weather


Springtime in the Rockies means crazy weather!  Last weekend's snow storm merited some TLC for all of our gardens, and My Kid's Lunch staff got creative with their methods for protecting our baby plants.  Luckily their efforts were successful and all of our plants weathered the storm!

Dig In!

Michael and Anna took advantage of the beautiful Denver weather over the weekend and dug in to our gardens at Woodrow Wilson and Denver Academy.  With the help of their canine assistant Rico, they tilled the soil to get it ready for new seeds and plants, careful not to disturb the onions that resprouted from last year.  Seeds were planted for peas, beets, lettuce, spinach and swiss chard, which should all be sprouting soon.  We’re so excited for all the fresh vegetables and herbs to come!

Gearing up for Gardens

Spring is here and that means it's time to get started on our gardens!  Michael and Angie have been hard at work over the past few moths building a nursery full of seedlings to plant in the outdoor gardens.They started with seeds, many of which were harvested from our own gardens last year, and now have a little army of plants ready to be moved outside! Baby broccoli, cauliflower, heirloom tomatoes (5 kinds), and peppers (4 kinds), as well as fresh herbs including sage, thyme, mint and cilantro are all waiting to make the move.
