Basil Plants

For a long-term science project in schoolage we chose to plant Basil Plants.  We planted two different kinds of basil.  The kit came with all the ingredients, we just planted and watered them to start off.

These are the dirt mounds with holes in the center for us to put the seeds into.

Adding some water to the mounds.

Putting in the seeds.

This is the "green house" cover that goes on top of the container.

Every few days we have been writing down our observations of the plant growth.

This is what they look like today, two weeks after we planted them.  We love looking at them at the end of each day and seeing what new developments have happened.  They are growing quite well!  We are excited for them to get big enough that we can use the leaves to cook yummy things!

Pumpkin Carving Contest

Holly Tree Priest Lake had a center wide Pumpkin Decorating Contest.  The parents voted on the pumpkin they liked best and the winner won an ice cream party.  

School age entered Finding Nemo into the competition:

Though it was a close race...


Thanks, parents, for voting!  We loved our ice cream party!
