For the past few weeks the sixth-grade students have watched the pods develop on the bottom of the plants first and then more beans appeared, working their way upwards. The plants reached more than 4 feet tall. Once the students picked the beans, they decided to make a fava bean salad that they shared with other students and staff in the school's canteen. Later on, they started harvesting the sugar snap peas. They couldn't resist the crunchy texture and sweet flavor that they proceeded to eat them raw right out of the garden. They were delicious!
