Last Call for Seeds
As previously mentioned, our lesson plan this week revolves around insects. Before we broke up into small groups, we talked to the children about the vandalism to the garden and how this was their garden. The lesson was interesting yet flexible, and I was able to additionally quiz the children on FCAT types of questions, as well as talk about how some plants fruit above, and others below ground.
The garden is growing in nicely, though there are a few empty spaces. Since the cucumbers are built on mounds, I planted a bunch of basil between the mounds. Our window for planting seeds is fast closing, and so we're going thru each bed and planting where it's needed. If we cant thwart the cold and grubs, our garden will be quite fruitful by Spring.
