Planting Seeds

The middle of February is a wonderful time to get seeds planted for the spring. We just had a couple of days of nice weather and it almost feels like Spring is in the air! Today we had a magical moment with some dirt, egg cartons, and scoopers. And of course, seeds!

Last fall I walked around my yard and harvested seeds from off many of my plants. Cone flowers, Sunflowers, Hastas, Watermellons, Marigolds, Zinnias, Basil, Cilantro, Daisys and Cantelope to name a few. I opened Marigold flowers and Hosta pods to reveal the miracle of seeds hidden inside. Another wonderful way to explore nature!

  1. I like this idea a lot! I think I will go and get some seeds and do this with the kids. This will be perfect for when I start my life cycles unit. Thanks!
