Our Little Garden

While a little off topic I just had to share!! My little one's very own starter garden!! She enjoyed helping me last year and this year they are planting and growing one at school. So we decided we would plant one just for her at home too!! We will learn about each plants needs like water, nutrients, soil, light, and air as part of her science work with the Junior Master Gardener Program "Learn, Grow, Eat and GO!" Then we are going to make fun recipes to see how they taste. She has fun and learns at the same time! That makes me as a mom very happy!

We are using a starter kit from Growums to start her garden at home because it comes with everything she needs to get started. Including fun character plant sticks!  We are using project planning sheets from the Junior Master Gardener website to track the amount of water and food each plant receives, as well as, each plants sprouting, growth, and ripening. 

The Growums kits are available from http://www.growums.com and if you would like to get more info about the "Learn, Grow Eat & Go!" program for your kids or their school go to the Junior Master Gardeners website at http://www.jmgkids.us/LGEG.
