100 Days of Science #80- Planting an Herb Garden

We try to plant something from seed each spring and this year we chose to try our hand at growing an herb garden.  

I just knew that would be a perfect edition to our 100 Days of Science Challenge!

Each boy picked one  packet and began planting the seeds in a few small plastic cups; making sure to label what they were planting.

Once they were all planted we gave them a good watering and then brought them inside to protect them from our cool nights.

We covered the tray with cling wrap to make our own little greenhouse and waited a few weeks to peek inside and see how they were doing.

Hopefully we'll be enjoying the fruits of our labor soon.

  1. What a cool thing to do. I always am in awe of watching things grow from seeds. Nature is just so cool like that!

    1. Thanks! It is pretty neat to think what grows from just one tiny seed.

  2. My girls did this with my husband and they all loved it. I love it since I now have fresh herbs!

  3. I remember planting like this when I was a child...parsley and chives and lima beans!! A great learning experience!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great July 4th Holiday!!

    1. We've grow lima beans a few times; they are so satisfying since they grow so nice and big so quickly.
