Growing an Interest in Gardening

Every year Wal-Mart sends a seed planting kit to the school. This year, I was the recipient. I shared the contents with two other classes. Here you can see a child preparing the peat in the cups.

When the soil was ready, they each chose two kinds of seeds to put in their cups. Quite a variety of seeds were included.

Here are the first ones, just coming up.

They grew well and now they are going home. The pumpkins were the most impressive. I think next year, we will all plant pumpkin seeds. You could see them grow.

The little gardeners are very proud of their plants.
