100 Days of Science #80- Planting an Herb Garden

We try to plant something from seed each spring and this year we chose to try our hand at growing an herb garden.  



I just knew that would be a perfect edition to our 100 Days of Science Challenge!


Each boy picked one  packet and began planting the seeds in a few small plastic cups; making sure to label what they were planting.






Once they were all planted we gave them a good watering and then brought them inside to protect them from our cool nights.


We covered the tray with cling wrap to make our own little greenhouse and waited a few weeks to peek inside and see how they were doing.




Hopefully we'll be enjoying the fruits of our labor soon.

    1. We've grow lima beans a few times; they are so satisfying since they grow so nice and big so quickly.
