Nibits for Newbies 4.3.16 Planting seeds

If it's SUNDAY
It's time for
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES


This weeks theme...

Gardening with First Graders!

This week we planted our seeds!
Now in NORCAL it's getting warm enough.

So...

We are trying 
PALLET GARDENS 
this year!




We wrapped our pallett's with shade cloth to
hold the soil in.
Don't want it to "leach" out.
So the seeds will go in next week.

Next...
individual seeds.

We recycle water bottles.
Cut them in half.
Turn the "top" portion UPSIDE DOWN
IN the bottom portion.
The bottom will hold the water.
I screw a string through the top.
The string becomes a WICK to 
suck up the water to the roots of the plant!


Soil in the top, water in the bottom!


VOILA!

A little SUNSHINE, a "mist" of water her & there!
Hopefully...we shall see sprouts SOON!


I made some big ones too!
I will plant MORE seeds next week!

Try it!
The kids will LOVE it!
