Celebrating Earth Day
Yesterday was Earth Day. In honor and celebration we started on our gardening adventure that is one step closer to becoming more self-sufficient. We spent the whole afternoon outside filling pots and planting our first vegetables and herbs. We used this as an opportunity for school learning about the plant structure and what plants need to survive, grow and produce seeds and fruit. We also started our seed beds for several other vegetables and herbs in order to see how a plant can start out as an itty bitty seed and grow into a big plant(this is science for my preschooler). Now the big question is can we do just as well in pots as in the ground? Stay tuned to see our progress, pictures next week.
