Gardent Scientists Part II: We compared the growth of our seedings to the seeds we planted in the bed. It seems that the seedling route may be the way to go but as one 1st grader pointed out, they may not do so well when we put them in the bed and the original seeds may be better able to handle the out door conditions. We’ll just have to keep an eye on them as they continue to grow.

We also talked about the parts of a seed and the life cycle it goes through as it goes from seed to sprout.

All in all it was a very exciting day!

Cheers,
