Garden Deliverables Module 10 - Garden Ecology Lesson 7: Garden Deliverables From Farm to Fork Whether its Fruit. Strawberries Whether its Vegetables. Cauliflower
Broccoli Carrots Whether its More Vegetables. Tomatoes And More Vegetables. Corn
Peppers Whether its Pumpkins, Melons and Squash. Or flowering plants (providing nectar). By Rlaferla, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=20573474 Bees are critical to making strawberries bigger, redder, and longer-lasting. Technically, strawberries can pollinate
themselves, but the resulting berries are small. Thats because a strawberry is really a collection of tiny fruits that all meld together into one delicious morsel. Each of those tiny fruits has to be individually pollinated. Without bees, that doesnt happen. https://mywoodlot.com/item/enjoying-a-strawberry-thank-sixty-bees Or observing the pollination process Squash plants have
male and female flowers. (The squash develops from the female flowers). The bees do the work of pollinating the flowers so the squash develops. No bees, no squash! Although wind can do the job, tomatoes benefit greatly from bumblebees' special "buzz pollination. Some experts recommend tapping each flower cluster a couple of times a day with a pencil, but we'd much rather provide an appealing habitat for bumblebees and let them do the workas nature intended.

Bear in mind that a school garden is not like projects which stand or fall by whether they meet their production targets. It is a learning experience, so the process is as important as the product. Success is good for motivation, but small failures are
interesting and instructive. Production objectives are not written in stone. Some may be dropped because of circumstances, or replaced with more interesting ones. Equally you may have to give up some gardening ambitions if educational needs are more important. Having a mid-term review of objectives and progress is always a good idea.

begins with Having a plan Knowing the harvest times (when will fruits and vegetables ripen?)
Knowing the plants growth cycles Being aware of weather and the climate of the region Dividing tasks / Sharing in the work Maintaining the garden having schedules for: Weeding Watering Soil Amending / Fertilizing (if needed) Protecting plants during bad weather (freezes, storms) Thinning Vegetables (radishes, carrots ) Harvesting Distributing produce for consumption (dont let it spoil!)
Other Tips for a Successful Edible Garden Start small Have a weekly schedule Solicit volunteers to help with students out in the garden, and to cover the tasks when students are on vacation Use an electronic garden planner that takes the guess-work out of planting times, harvesting times, etc.; A great one to use is Farmers Almanac Garden Planner: https://gardenplanner.almanac.com/gardenplanner/gardenplanner.ht ml# Setting Up and Running a School Garden.
