2011 Garden Preview

We got off to a much better start this year. We have a living room full of seedlings that are strong and ready to go into the ground.

 
Next week, we are getting a truck full of soil to finish off the plots and will post pictures once we have most things in the ground.

Of course, we've made a lesson out of the new garden. Doing a lot of predicting and estimating (math) and new vocabulary (words like germination, trellis) and learning about pollination. Last year we were pleasantly surprised to learn that ants pollinated as well as bee's. The ants hooked my cucumber plants up!

Happy Planting!

Hilarious @ ants hooked up your cucumber plants.

I had no idea that ants pollinated. Learn something new everyday.

So how has the new garden come along?
