Today we are planting carrot seeds, radish seeds, and pea seeds. These seeds need to be planted in a specific time of year, at a specific depth and spacing apart. We used the seed planting sticks we made that has ruler marks on them. By Dayanara
The garden club started a senses garden - Diifferent plants we can smell, taste, touch, pretty to look at. We planted, sweet plant, mint, apple mint geranium, cilantro, pink rosemary and lemon verbena.
Today we also made more measuring sticks for planting seeds. Drew sticks out of bag to win a mint plant to take home.
Today we learned about dividing a garden plot into square feet. We can plant all kinds of vegetables and flowers in our plot squares. We also learned the correct way to plant plants at the level of the ground - too high and they can dry out. Too low can rot the stem. Some of us got to plant lettuce and cool weather tomatoes.
