Dig, Sow, Grow!

Today, the kids started a 12 week, bi-weekly homeschool class at a farm that will give them hands-on experience and learning about growing plants. Today was our first day, and they each took home a little tomato plant in a mini-greenhouse made from a soda bottle. They also started seeds to grow in the farm's greenhouse, and eventually, they will get to plant vegetables in their own little plot of land and tend it and harvest it, and make some food with harvest, along the way learning about soil nutrients, photosynthesis, insects(good and bad), etc. I'm so excited, because I want to learn too, for the sake of our garden, that we have been trying to establish for years.
