It's Planting Time!

Now is the time to be planting a fall garden. Peas, sweet peas, lettuce, beets, and parsley are all easy to grow and will do well at this time of year.
We are studying plants in science and are learning about germination, parts of a plant and photosynthesis. All of this is so much more meaningful with real plants to observe. If you are not able to plant a garden, how about adopting a weed! It is interesting to observe changes in any plant: measure it, sketch it, compare it with others around it. Ask your child about our butterfly garden plans.
