Future Farmers


Yesterday we started our tomato plants, pepper plants, and a few flowers.  We did this with the big boys a few years ago and they loved it.  Its always exciting watching things grow, especially when you planted it.  This time we found some real ingenious trays from Burpee.  They have a little cork shaped ball of soil that expands when warm water is poured on it.  There was little if any mess…even with kids!   There was even a lesson on liquid measure, since we needed 13 1/2 cups of water!


We sorted our varieties and each child got to pick and plant their own variety.  We labeled them and covered our trays.  Hopefully they will sprout in 10 to 14 days. 


This year we are planning a much bigger garden and the kids will be expected to help more.  Don is going to cut off some hoes and each kid will be responsible for a row in the garden to keep weeded, watered, and picked.  We can’t hardly wait another month to get started planting potatoes!  They are excited about the new responsibilities and getting to be farmers like daddy.
