Celebrate Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone!!! In celebration of Earth Day the girls and I went and got some plants and planted them in containers on our patio. I can't wait until we get a house and are able to put in a garden but, container gardening will have to do for now!

We got a variety of vegetables, herbs, flowers, and a few seeds, as well as strawberries, which are Miriam's favorite. We had to go to 4 different places until we could find strawberry plants!

Planting was our main home school lesson today! That and shopping, and deciding what we needed to buy to be able to plant them, and learning just how much potting soil you need. We had to make a second trip back just for more potting soil! But it was definitely worth it to see the girls so excited!
