Simon's garden journal was cute. He told me what to write:
I planted little seeds. Then it sprouted. Then it became a plant. It is going to have very huge squash on it. I am going to share it and eat it.
Here is a little greenhouse I found at a book sale (yes, I find the strangest things at book sales!).
You can recreate this idea with a plastic bag. You could even use some cardboard to make a frame for the greenhouse. You simply tuck a wet paper towel and a few seeds inside the house. Radish seeds are great because they sprout so fast. We've actually use this multiple times with different seeds.
Let's Make a Memory ~ Cooking Vegetable Soup
First, we headed out to the garden to grab some of our home grown vegetables. Then I peeled and chopped and sliced and diced until we had tons of veggies. We started with garlic, onion, and olive oil. After it cooked Simon added the broth. And lots of veggies (celery, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, and cabbage)!
