We have been deeply engrossed in the whole process of planting seeds and watching them grow. We realised we had to be patient while waiting for various seeds to germinate. Take a look at progress. We even linked our work to our procedural writing.
At first we ensured we had the essentials - empty pot, soil, seed mat and label.
Next, we put a spoonful of soil into our pots, placed the seed mat on top and covered it with more soil. Then we put the label in the pot and placed the pot into our watering tray.
Soon everyone had followed the steps and the waiting began!
Finally, the seeds began to germinate! We've been watering regularly, checking daily for new shoots, observing growth and waiting for roots to appear.
Almost all plants are ready to be taken home where we can continue to care for them and soon re-pot them. We discussed suitable uses and look forward to harvesting!
