It was an unusually cool day in the garden, but the sun was shinning and the kids were filled with a restless energy that probably resulted from being kept inside all weekend with the rain. I could tell that they were excited to be outside in the Peace Patch. Today's lesson had to do with seeds. We asked the students if they could tell us where they thought seeds could be found in plants. We then explained how seeds could be collected, dried and then stored for future planting. We took a tour of the garden having the students point out to us where the seeds where in the different plants. They stood in awe around the giant green pumpkins and excitidly pointed out a grasshopper that was nestled between the leaves.
