This spring Hailey and I are going to participate in the garden challenge over at The Homeschool Village. We still have some snow on the ground where we live and a forecast for another snow storm this weekend. So we can’t actually plant outside yet- and usually can’t until the end of May. But I do want to participate, so we are going to get a few things started inside. So far the only thing we have planted inside is grass:
She planted just a few grass seeds a little over a week ago
One week after she planted.
A better shot to see how much her grass grew in one week. That was on Monday of this week.
This is her grass today- it has really grown since Monday. Each morning it is noticeably taller than the night before.
I have some more things planned to plant with Hailey and once the weather is nice enough I want to start a garden with her. So, here’s the plan:
I am thinking we will plant in this area- I need to come up with a way to keep the deer and rabbits out of our garden though. Since our growing season is short we will probably have to buy plants that are already started. I want to grow things like tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, etc.
As part of studying about gardening I have lots of activities in my Mailbox magazines that we will use. I am also excited to use the Garden Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations to go along with our unit. We probably won’t actually do our gardening unit until the end of May when it is usually safe to plant.
A few more plans for planting:
Rich rebuilt our deck last summer and we added some plants and landscaping. Hailey and I are going to do some more planting and add some more flowers.
This picture is from almost 2 years ago- but behind Hailey is the front of our house. I really want to rip those bushes out (and have Rich rebuild our porch, but that’s another story) and add some nice flowers and plants there.
So- there’s our plans for this spring/summer. Hailey and I are both excited to get started. Check out what everyone is else planning over at The Homeschool Village.
