Harvest of the Month- Apples! Mmmmmm good!

Ashley helping us to learn about the
life cycle of an apple
Today we had a special presentation by the Farm to School Initiative. Each month Ashley will be coming in to talk about a "Harvest of the Month" This month we learned about apples. We learned about the life cycle of the apple and even got to sample 2 different varieties of apples. 

Did you know that it takes 4-5 years for an apple tree to have its first crop? We also found out that a 200 year old apple tree can still produce apples. WOW!
Tasting the first apple 
Ask your child to tell you more about what they learned. See how much of the life cycle they can remember- we did it by seasons starting with winter.

Getting ready to sample
