5th graders plant their garden!

13 Nov

The 5th grade garden is planted and filled with the potential of all of the wonderful seeds they have put in the ground.  First, they planted Bachelor Button’s, also called Cornflower.  This is a drought tolerant annual plant that does well just about anywhere.  They come in a variety of colors (we’ll have to wait until Spring to know what the 5th graders planted!) and are attractive to bees, butterflies and birds.  

They also planted seeds for carrots and butterfly flowers.   Hopefully we’ll be seeing some carrot tops emerge soon.  For sure, we’ll be making butterflies very happy with the butterfly flowers that they planted.
