This week on the Work and Play, Day by Day Facebook page, I shared a glimpse into our science plans for this school year (human anatomy & health for those who don't keep up with us there). In this early fall season, however, we are still finishing up our summer science project, our rainbow garden (read more here and here). Here are some pictures of a small amount of our bounty!
Carnival Cayenne Peppers- we also had several purple ones.
Blue Popping Corn- We haven't popped any yet as most of it is still drying, but I think this is the most beautiful color we grew, a mix of purples
Our heirloom tomatoes varied from an almost pink color to a dark purple.
Hello rainbow carrots!!
That large carrot in my hand, just to show diameter
Most of the rainbow carrots are orange inside, but some of them are actually yellow.
I realized after I came inside that I probably should have taken a few pictures of how amazing the garden looks, even now. The only "rainbow" vegetable we grew that didn't do much was the yellow *desert* watermelon. I have more seeds though so we might try again next year!
