And here is their lunch.
You can just make out a few of them in this shot.
Here are the students' worm bins that are being taken care of by groups of four to five of our sixth graders.
Another new addition to the growing operation are several four foot seedling lamps.
Here we have pea sprouts, and behind them sunflower sprouts, that only yesterday showed no signs of sprouting. The idea here is to grow them as micro greens to use in salads and as garnish.

Pretty soon things are going to be in full swing here at Middlebrook Farm School so stay tuned and if you are in the neighborhood come and check us out. Also keep an eye out for Ambler Farm maple syrup. It is some of the yummiest around and it is 100% local. Their Maple Syrup Open House is Saturday, March 5th and the 12th. There are plenty of activities like syrup tastings with ice cream and you can watch the evaporator boil away over the warm fire.
