The fourth grade kids were treated to a pizza lunch on Tuesday using ingredients they planted themselves in the hoop house at the fairgrounds. Under the direction of 4-H Educator Sara Fleenor and Beth Ellsbury, they harvested tomatoes, onions, basil and peppers.
Once the hive of excited activity died down and the bowls were filled with vegetables (and everyone was sure the basil was really basil), Fleenor showed the kids how to harvest wheat. All ingredients gathered, each one was carefully washed and chopped to be assembled on pizza bases and eaten as a delicious lunchtime meal.
