The Fruits Of Our Labor.
If you dig something up from the soil on Mars, is it still called “unearthing”? Overlake students dug into this and other fun debates as they dug for crops they’d planted in the spring on a recent Overlake service day. Harvesting potatoes is surprisingly fun: First you use a spading fork to gently rock the plant back and forth to loosen the roots. Then you search through the soil for potatoes. There’s a little thrill when you spot one – almost like an Easter egg hunt. And it’s even better when it’s for a great cause: Everything we grow at the NewDover Campus Garden goes directly to local food pantries.
