School Announcements and Upcoming Events
Planter l'ail avec M. Koehring (Planting Garlic with Mr. Koehring)
From Mr. Koehring:

Bonjour École Centrale de Long Lake!

November 4, 2014 was garlic planting day at Long Lake Central School! The 3rd-6th grade students, along with Mr. Koehring, headed out to the school garden this morning and planted 64 garlic cloves in a grow box. Mrs. Pelton came to my rescue to wrap it up.

I told the children that it is a systematic process. First, we began by turning the soil to aerate it. Second, I   demonstrated how to make holes, about 4-6” apart in a straight line, with the index finger to mark where to plant the clove of garlic, then each student took a turn making holes. The children commented that the soil was cold. Third, I demonstrated how to plant a clove of garlic, with the root end down into the soil and the shoot end up, then each student took a turn planting. Fourth, I demonstrated how to cover each hole with dirt, then the children covered the remaining holes. Fifth, we covered the entire grow box with leaves. The children loved this part. Finally, we covered the leaves with plastic and the children collected rocks to lay down on the plastic around the edge to keep the plastic from blowing away.

The garlic cloves are well insulated for their winter dormancy. We should be able to harvest next July. I told the children that it is a magical process that one clove of garlic grows into one large bulb of garlic, consisting of 6-8 cloves.
