Planting seeds!

On this cold winter day I am thinking about spring! images-2

It is hard to imagine as I look out my window at three feet of snow, that spring is just a few weeks away.

This time of year I love looking at seed catalogs and dreaming about planting crops of potatoes, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, squash and cabbages! (In reality, the last few years I’ve been satisfied with tomatoes and green peppers in pots!) It warms the heart to think about fresh vegetables growing right in one’s own garden.

In the Oak Meadow science curriculum there are some assignments that require students to plant seeds. I found this great idea for seedling pots in Scratch Magazine and I just had to share it! I’m going to give it a try when I plant my seeds for my garden.images-3
