The 2nd grade students started planting their individual garden cells this morning. Did you know an oregano seed is as small as a grain of salt? AND that it can grow 14 to 22 inches in height? While the calendula seeds are odd shaped and rather large? Plants are amazing.
The pole beans are getting ready for a structure to climb on – the hoops should be in place on Monday. On the other side we’ll plant birdhouse gourd vine and climbing nasturtiums.
The radishes are really popping up and this variety will be ready to harvest in just a few weeks! The students are working hard, getting dirty and learning so much.
Keep checking back – we’ll have updates on the hoop structures, the rock river and snaps of what else may be popping up in the garden beds.
Engineering stimulates the mind. Kids get bored easily. They have got to get out and get their hands dirty: make things, dismantle things, fix things. When the schools can offer that, you’ll have an engineer for life. – Bruce Dickinson
