Here we are on the second week of kinderGARDENS! We would have posted Thursday, but as most of you know, Blogger was down, so here we are today.
This is Matthew's part of the garden. He planted 800 carrot seeds and can't wait for them to sprout. For the full story go to The garden is planted!.
Thursday we got the opportunity to see how trees sprout from seeds. For full story go to Natures Bounty.
Planting the 800 seeds. I suppose a better teacher would have spent alot of time explaining how it's not a good idea to plant that many seeds in a small site and tried to make him space them and plant them properly, but this time I just sat back and let him go to town. I feel like I don't let him experiment or experience enough in the garden (because I want it to work right), so my goal is to let him to his own thing, at least in his garden space.
Our little strawberry plants are blooming, so we are hoping for strawberries once and awhile this summer. I'm going to try getting strawberry seeds sprouting again and plant them. I had 5 varieties of sprouts, but in the last crazy moments of the move, the delicate little things got crispy fried!
Everyday Matthew has to go out and see his sunflower sprouts!
Checking to see if the tomato plant is doing ok. It already has blooms.
Matthew is so excited about those sunflowers, the minute Mamaw got home from work, he was dragging her over to check them out.
As some of the others are experiencing, I'm having trouble deciding what is the best way to efficiently to water the garden. This this space doesn't have traditional rows for hoses to march up and down, it's a little hard to water everything. Using the "soggy doggy" sprinkler worked pretty good, but I still do alot of moving of water elements (got soaked in the process) and it soaked my garden path. I'll keep working on it!
