These third-graders were busy today! They planted several types of mint (sweet, peppermint, and spearmint), as well as dill and oregano and onion around the cabbages planted by Mrs Schultes’ class last month. Don’t they look SO much bigger in the few short weeks?

We also planted beet seeds. These went straight into mushroom compost.

Finally, the students made wildflower “seed bombs” . Described by several students as looking like poop, these balls of dirt, clay and seeds will grow into showy Florida-native wildflowers. Hopefully students can remember to find a sunny spot in the yard to “bomb” when they get home. Here’s a link to the recipe if you want to make some at home.
