A Bag of Plants

 A Kindergartener in Musa's and Kojo's Crew found a bag of sunflower seeds.  He insisted on planting them.   He said:  "I found a bag of plants in the ball field. We need to plant them here." 


(No one had the heart to tell him that salted, roasted seeds would not grow.)







Update:  Since planting the seeds, first grade farmers planted viable sunflower seeds nearby.   Uh Oh!  When will he ever learn? (Next year for sure!)

Fifth Graders Three Sisters Gardens


Be Sustainable...

Fifth Graders needed a 1/2 gallon container of soil for exploring Maya water and soil management techniques.  What's a sustainable reuse for the container and the soil? Why:  A Three Sisters Mini-Garden!  (Johanna's inspiration.)  







Now on to transplanting...Heard corn and beans don't enjoy their roots being disturbed.  Will update.

Couldn't agree more!




Okay, not perfect spelling!








Thank you so much.  That was hard work!
