This week the HK8 Life Skills class did some seeding for their annual plant sale. After we hauled the soil, and filled the flats, the students seeded out three different varieties for tomatoes; a cherry, a paste and a salad type. We also seeded basil, chives (a little late), and parsley. We talked about the importance of soil temperature and seed planting depth. The kids were challenged by working with the small seed, but established their our techniques by the end of the hour.
Last week we transplanted two varieties of mint, and iris.
Thank you Zephyros and Thistle Whistle for donating the mother plants!
