Monday night we planted seeds for our garden. The kids have been really anxious about this, and super excited to be part of a summer-long veggie-growing experience. They were so excited when we brought out each seed packet, explained what it was, and then had them plant it in the soil. "Jalapenos! Yes! I love jalapenos! I'm going to eat 17 of them!"
Here are the girls, watering their soil after they planted some different varieties of seeds. We used TP rolls to separate the plants, so that after they sprout, we can take each one and transplant it into our garden beds. They used popsicle sticks to write the names of each plant as well.
The boys also helped, and loved taking two seeds each for every hole they pushed open with their fingers. They really liked the difference in seeds. Some were huge (squash) and others were super duper tiny (lettuce).
Each veggie was given six little sections, where two seeds were planted in each section. We hope they grow!
