Brandon Martinez was excited to take home some turnips.

Fifth grade students at Fulton Learning Center (FLC) have been busy taste testing and harvesting turnips in the school’s vegetable gardens during the last week of school before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Students planted turnips seeds in late September during their science lab times. The seeds were donated to the school by Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company out of Mansfield, MO. Students have taken turns watering the vegetables at the end of each school day. The gardens were enriched with mulch brought in by the district’s maintenance department and with bags of oak leaves donated by staff members and community members in March 2021.

Organic fertilizers were also added using funds from a $500 San Patricio County Farm Bureau donation to the school for gardening.

Students will take bags of turnips home for their families to dine on with permission from parents during the next few weeks of school.
