A gardening we will go...

Yesterday was the day to plant the marigold seeds that our pen pals from New Orleans sent us.  We planted rows and rows of them on our school farm! We had to use what we had learned about measurement to help us plant our seeds.  Knowing our measurement vocabulary really helped us!

Mr. Koehn explained that we should plant the marigolds about 5 or 6 inches away from the grass so they would not get run over by the lawnmower this summer.

Brandon and Keller used the width of their hands to space the seeds while planting.

Ava and Madison carefully follow the directions on their seed packets.

Bryce and Quinn work together to plant their marigold seeds.

Jaykob, David and Rachel take a closer look at the marigold seeds their pen pals sent them.

Lexi and Tel cover up the seeds they planted.

Boy! Planting seeds is dirty work!

Really dirty work!
After we finished planting our seeds Mr. Koehn took us to the new greenhouse. We ran wild through it!

I LOVE this place!

A few of us discovered the fan outside.  We felt like we were getting blown away!

Do you have a school farm or garden?  If so, what kinds of plants do you grow?
