We would do review materials, bible, and history. The lad would do his private reading but I would cut him slack if he was at the end of a chapter. We would also do outside the house stuff. Drama day, lego, mad science, a movie etc...
Within that I would scatter in other things.... like planting seeds. :)
The question is.. which method (if any) will work best.
We will be rotating which is closest to the window and which direction they are facing.
This year we wanted to try covering them with the plastic lids so the popsicle stick didn't work (too tall). We problem solved for a bit but weren't coming up with a good solution until Dad came along and said "why not cut down the skewers and use address labels"? Therein a solution was found.
We have learned it is not a perfect solution as the labels are splitting on us, but we hope it'll do until the plants are big enough to tell what is what and then we can put in popsicle sticks if needed.
Next week I am hopeful to plant some seeds outside under our plastic wrap.. things like lettuce and radishes and what not. Good for the bunnies, good for people too. :)
Tomatoes - cherry and beefsteak
Peppers - hot, small bells, red bells, green bells
Five different types of flowers: cosmos, marva, marigold, zinnia and snapdragon
and one other thing that slips my mind.
We aren't done. Friday we'll plant a few other things like cabbage, broccoli and the like. The lad sells them in the spring for 50 cents each plant. Styrofoam cups make them easy to transport.
Have you started seeds indoors at all this year yet? If so, what are you growing?
