Friday was Earth Day and I was the guest lecturer at Max's Kindergarten. We covered some ASL (American Sign Language) signs that had to do with growing things....grow, garden, pea, cup, water, sun, etc. After that we planted some peas in repurposed containers. I chose peas because Kindergarten students need some immediate feedback and peas sprout quickly.
When I returned home from the Kindergarten class, I had a pleasant surprise waiting for me....plants! I had volunteered to be a tester for Burpee awhile back. Fed Ex delivered a box of live plants, and on Earth Day. How fortuitous!
Here are the black soy beans starts that I transplanted in the big garden. These were started from seeds from the Bountiful Gardens catalog. They have a lot of hard to find seeds and all are heirloom.
So hope you enjoyed my gardening updates from last week....stay tuned for more. Enjoy your week!
