Sorry for the late post tonight-had to run some errands! Today, we started planting! It was an exciting endeavor and perfect for a rainy day! Each student got a planter cup, scooped their own soil, and decided which seeds they wanted to plant. Using thick popsicle sticks, the kids also labeled the plants they chose so we'll able to remember what we planted. They got to choose from radish seeds, cucumber seeds, corn seeds, spearmint seeds, lavender seeds, and beet seeds.
