After a lot of planting and constructing, we finally got onto the physical part of planting a Potager Garden. The garden had already been weeded thoroughly since the last time we saw it (that’s last term). However a few little weeds had cropped up on the past few weeks the garden had been untouched. And the weeds weren’t the only things that had cropped up, insects of every sort had inhabited the area during the holidays. They made the weeding process slightly more difficult.
After a while, the gardens had been weeded (again), and the planting process was ready to begin. Our plan consisted of sweet-peas on a tee-pee, Primulas, Violas, Lobelias and our classic carrots. The carrot seeds were enclosed in a papery tape sort of thing, we buried the tape, which was said to be able to dissolve, leaving the carrot seeds lined up perfectly like little soldiers. We then placed the seedling flowers on the dirt just to view our pattern, then planted them.
It was a perfect day, and afterwards we bunched together for a photo, took one last satisfied look at our work, then trooped back inside the science room.
