Even kids know that organic is better and toxins need to be eliminated from our food supply! Watch this 4th grader’s potato experiment to find out what she learned about bud-nip and a chemical called Chlorpropham, as well as possible cross contamination at conventional grocery stores versus organic markets.
Here are some updated pics of the bush bean, squash and pumpkin seeds that we planted on August 11th. These pictures were taken a couple of days ago and reflect the growth of our seeds at day 50. They still have a long way to go, as you can see.
Bush Beans. These beans are supposed to be yellow, so we are waiting for them to change color a bit before harvesting them. The seed packet says that they will be ready to harvest in 60 days, so we’re almost there.
Squash. The seed packet says 53 days to harvest. We don’t even have gourds growing yet to harvest at 50 days, so we’ll wait patiently and see what happens.
Baby Mini Jack Pumpkins. We have some big, beautiful flowers that will be pumpkins some day. The seed packet said 90 days to harvest, so we hope to have some pumpkins in November.
