Before planting the children mixed in the compost with trowels to feed the soil. When planting they dribbled the seeds and then barely covered them with soil since the seeds are so tiny.
|Feb. 28-Lettuce seeds planted.|
We covered the seed area with a white cloth to keep the soil warmer and speed up germination. On March 9 we could see that some seeds had germinated.
The children also planted lettuce seeds in recycled plastic bottles. The tops were covered with saran wrap until the seeds sprouted.
As of March 9 the seeds had grown about two inches!
|March 9-Seedlings are tall!|
