    I am heartbroken not to be together will all my Sprouts and Seeds this year beautifying our school and keeping our garden happy and healthy!

    In the meantime, though, I encourage all you OVE gardeners to keep working in your own gardens.  Keep checking in here to see how OVE staff and students are keeping things growing and to get some ideas about planting at home

    *Project idea one: Sugar Snap Peas Sugar Snap Peas Clipart

    It’s a little early to plant some veggies in your garden, since many baby plants don’t like cold and frost, but one thing you can plant right away is sugar snap peas!  They are super yummy & you can eat them right off the vine in late spring/early summer.  I got mine as starts (baby plants) at Home Depot and they’ve already grown several inches in a few weeks!  They also grow super well from seeds (you can buy those on Amazon!).

    *They need something to hold onto as they grow taller.  Check out how mine have wrapped their little fingers around the trellis!  If you don’t have a trellis, you can make something for them to hold on to using wooden sticks and string.  Click here for directions.  How To Make a Snap Pea Trellis

    *Project idea two: Start baby veggies inside!  

    1.) Get some seeds, cheap plastic pots (or even unused cardboard boxes!), and some potting soil *I like to grocery shop at Fred Meyer, and every week I load some garden supplies on the bottom rack of my cart, so I’m not making extra trips to the store.

    2.) Plant the seeds in the pots and keep them in your window sill.  Water often!

    3.) When they’re ready to go out, keep the pot outside for a few days.  Then plant in your garden!

    *I planted my cucumber starts today, but I’m waiting a little bit for my tomatoes. They like warm weather and HATE frost!

    Our garden rebuild was amazingly successful!  We have four rebuilt beds, beautiful red mulch in between, and a brand-new pollinator bed!!  Thank you so much to everyone who helped out!

     Building new beds!

    Our Sprouts and Seeds had the best year!  We have planted strawberries, lettuce, peas, corn, pumpkins, sunflowers, artichokes, herbs, and a variety of other fruits and veggies in our garden beds.  We've also beautified the school with some gorgeous flowers!
