Yesterday the children decorated their clay pots and today was the day to plant the basil seeds. From the time they came in this morning, the questions started: "Are we going to plant our seeds today?" "When are we planting our seeds?" "I hope we get to plant today." How could we not have time for such an important activity and one that so many of them were looking forward to? So a bag of potting soil, clay pots, and basil seeds were all it took to put smiles on faces. We talked about how this herb is very good in spaghetti sauce and pizza. We also touched on the care of the plant -- watering and keeping the pot near a sunny window. We can't wait to hear about the progress of the seeds turning into plants. It didn't take much to make their day today!!
