Harvesting and Tasting
Learning what we can put into a salad and then we planted some seeds that Susanne will take to her green house to start. She said she will bring them back soon to plant in our garden.
First thing we did was we looked at the plants and tasted the plants. Second thing we did was pick a partner. Third thing we picked a milk carton. Fourth thing we schooped the soil. fifth thing we picked a seed. Sixth thing we piled the seed. Edward
