Gardening....Plant Unit....



 This is what I was doing the last two days before Spring Break...cleaning out the raised beds! The kids were a great help and loved every minute. We got the old bed cleared out, and built the new bed. I can't tell you how many times I heard "this is a man's job" from my students as I was building the bed! Too funny...we had a great lesson on the importance of being able to do it yourself. Talk about teachable moment in which I had to think fast! Love 'em!

I forgot to take finished photos!
So here is what the garden looks like exactly one week later....
The box on the left was built last year. The box on the right is the new one. Funded by an Ag Grant!
We have multiple sprouts!!!!
Corn!

Pumpkins
Strawberries and Blueberries...nothing going on here....

Cucumbers....I have build and add the trellis...Monday's project.
 We are very excited about this project. We have been waiting forever for the funding to come in. So now that it has, we wait and learn all about gardening. (Mind you, I have no clue. Last year was trial and error but we were successful at harvesting some veggies! I am hoping for the same luck this year.) 

I have been working on my plant unit...to be posted soon!
