planting the fall garden (and using worksheets as a weed barrier)
Ideally, I would like to grow my garden from seeds… however, not this year 🙂
So… I bought a flat of cool-weather salad greens.
Then… the kid’s planted them all!
(it’s funny, I really enjoy gardening and getting my hands dirty – but so do the kids, which means I mostly supervise while they do all the fun stuff!!)
Once, all the plants were planted – it was time to put down a weed barrier!
I got out a huge stack of worksheets…
(I’m implementing a more unschooling approach this year and so worksheets are not necessary!)
The kids cheered as they ripped the schoolwork and laid it down between the plants.
The paper-barrier is not very attractive (LOL) – but I think it’s going to work!
We get junk mail almost everyday, so when we water the garden, we can fill in the gaps with it.
I suppose now, we just water, weed, and wait…
(I still need to plant some cauliflower, but then, I am just going to work on managing these plants!)
