We are continuing to participate in the Garden Challenge and it has been a month since I last posted on this subject, so it is time for a update. Since the children and I are studying WWII we are learning a about life during the War and food rationing. We decided to named our Gardens
First we got some scrap plywood out and painted it to better weather proof the wood. We used what paint we had on hand
Little Man decided to named our vegetable garden "Victory Garden" just like in the books we are reading on WWII
Princess decided she wanted to name the flower garden the "Dragon Garden"
Last Month the only thing we planted was our potato plants and they are doing so well
We should have a bumper crop if I can keep the bugs away.
Next we decided to try planting a few other items
We have planted broccoli, pumpkins, radishes, spring onions, carrots and lettuce.
For flowers we planted poppies, foxglove, Mexican Hats and Sweet Williams.
We put all our seeds into our mini hot house. I found this at a garden shop and am trying it out for the first time this year. I am noticing more seeds have made it to little sprouts than last year.
We going to try growing indoor mushrooms this year.
The plot where our vegetables will go once the seedlings are big enough!
Princess really wanted a Flower garden this year so she took on the responsibility for planting the flower garden with a little guidance. She did a great job.
We planted a few flower seeds in trays and are hoping to expand the flower garden this spring!
