Each year, we do some sort of gardening activity with the children. We’re also happy to answer your gardening quesitons (and generally talk gardening with anyone who stops by).

Making Seed Tape

We had fun making seed tape with the children! Roll out 3 or 4 feet of toilet paper. Squirt a thin line of glue down the center. Place your seed on the glue at the recommended spacing. Fold over one long side and then the other. Roll up your seed tape and wait until you’re ready to plant in the garden. To plant, make a furrow about the same depth as the seeds. Lay the seed tape down and cover it with dirt. Water well and watch your seeds sprout!
