My Garden Status

I started seeds indoors a few weeks ago (I won't be planting outside until May since the frost warning for our area is until mid-May). I planted yellow squash, brussel sprouts, broccoli, purple tomatillos, rosemary and basil. The first set of seeds that I started emerged after only a few days and were doing great, for about a week and a half when we had nicer weather and I decided to put them outside and I forgot them overnight and we had a really cold night. Now they are looking really sad:

After I nearly killed all the plants I decided to start over and planted more broccoli, brussel sprouts, and yellow squash. I also added cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and jalapenos. Most of the seeds have come up and are doing great, and I am not going to take them outside until I know that I will not kill them!

My kids will be planting their own seeds in the next couple weeks and have already started enjoying our garden themed sensory box.

This post is part of a four part link-up with the Homeschool Village's Garden Challenge. To visit the link-up click here. You will find other garden link-ups as well as fun activities to do with your kids. I will be posting more fun garden activities to do with kids through the month of April.

I don't have much luck starting seeds inside, but, luckily we did get our spring garden in and we have lettuce, carrots, radishes, and peas coming up!
Thanks, Becky Jane

I even did a post on my plants from seed in egg cartons which never grew later--I think the roots couldn't penetrate the carton! Way to be honest--helps us all--and start again!

Been there done that, so glad you had more seeds!

We want to plant a garden this spring too! My 4yo is very excited about it. I have also decided to start composting also. Wish us luck!
