Planting at Wilton Place

At Wilton Place we have been talking so much about our life cycles of plants. I always feel like it is way more fun to witness it first hand.

So we began to plant both radishes and beans in our school garden. We will check on our sprouts and see what our little seeds needs are.

We poke the soil with our pinkies, then we wiggle around the soil, then drop our seeds in and cover. This way we are all able to plant our seeds the appropriate depth so they can grow properly.
