Marigolds and Morning Glories–June 2, 2011

We divided up into three groups. Group one planted marigolds (brought by Anna) with Lou, group two helped Anna plant morning glories around the outside of the garden and group three observed what they noticed in the garden with Maggie. Next a game of Tag, You’re Fit and then a few kids picked and rinsed some spinach for all 14 participants to taste along with Anna’s fantastic dressing: olive oil, garlic cloves, dijon mustard, honey, rice vinegar, lemon, salt and pepper. All the spinach was eaten and the kids wanted the recipe for the yummy dip!

  • plant marigolds at the ends of the beds to help keep bugs away
  • plant morning glories near fence so they can climb
  • observe
  • water new plants
