Tat Soi and Blogging
We harvested and sampled our tat soi and some of our swiss chard today. Students took home bags of tat soi to share with their families. If you’re new to tat soi, it’s similar to spinach so it can be eaten raw or cooked. If cooking, the stems can get a little chewy so some prefer to cut them out prior to cooking as shown above. Either chop the stems finely to add to your saute or stir fry, or compost them.
Students also posted on the blog for the first time today answering one of the following questions:
What have you learned so far about organic gardening and why is it important for the health of our planet?
What have your learned about the importance of recycling or water conservation?
What have your learned about eating healthy and why it is important to your body?
Stay tuned for delicious recipes for using tat soi.
