We've been busy over the past few weeks. We started a gardening unit in school last month and have been learning about seeds/plants/vegetables/flowers. We've started a nice collection of lima beans on the window sill along with lettuce, tomatoes and watermelon. For those of you who know me, I have a really hard time keeping living things of the plant variety alive (so far, I have a pretty good track record of keeping the children fed and watered). So, it will be interesting to see how long we can keep our little plants alive. We also started our first ever fruit and vegetable garden. We've planted tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and strawberries and hope to be enjoying a yummy salad and strawberry shortcake this summer.
