Prepping for the activity, I was going through children's activity websites and even got a few books from the library. Wow! Talk about great ideas! I am itching for the warm weather to return for good so I can get started on my garden! My plants will be ready before I know it also! Look how tall they are already!
Tip for next time - beans and peas can be planted directly into the garden. There is no need to start them indoors. I knew this, after helping my mom plant her garden for years and years, so why did I decide to start them indoors? I have no idea. I will have to transplant them soon, however, so perhaps a small container garden will bear some veggies until the soil warms up?!
I also planted 'cat grass' yesterday, which is nothing more than oats. I had hoped I could score some free seed from my parents' farm or the feed mill, but seeing the seed packet for $1.69 the other day, I decided the convenience was worth it and purchased the packet. The grass should be up in only 5 days, and I suspect that by day 15 ,it will be ready to set out for Fergie and Penny. Now maybe they will leave the rest of my plants alone!
