It's amazing the life lessons that come to mind when we begin to explain to them the wonder of growing things.
The transformation of the seed --
The nurture of the soil
The importance of deep roots --
The need for water and sun --
The productive outcome of all their hard work ---
The fruit that comes from this transformation process --
It's all about the miracle of life . . .
|Mid March we planted our seeds|
|Mid April our Mohammed Ali Peace Garden Grant Supplies Arrived|
|We got three above ground garden frames|
|We protect our plants from the weeds and the deer|
|With the help of Ronny McGlothlin we were able to build some more|
|These two gals LOOOOOOVE their veggies!|
|We've made so many new friends digging in the dirt together!|
We love to watch the wonder in their eyes when they see how much their plants have grown from week to week.
|All hands on deck!!! We're using our kid-size tools that came with our Mohammad Ali Garden Grant|
|Thanks, Mr. Tom for these awesome plants!!!|
|These three turned out to be expert "squirters" with the hose!|
|We made fruit ka-bobs to celebrate our hard work and talk about what we expected to grow!|
