Starting some seedlings for the garden
On April 13th we planted some seeds so that we would have some seedlings ready to go into the garden in May. It took a while until we saw our first sprouts. Along the way we have learned some things. The boys have been keeping track of our progress and writing about what they are learning in their garden journals. We have learned about seed leaves and true leaves and all about seeds germinating.
Here are our first sprouts on April 23rd:
We now know that marigolds and pumpkins are the first to germinate, and that pumpkins grow really fast!!
We'd better get that garden built because we need to get these pumpkins into the ground soon!
