Perfect Day for Spring Planting

The sun is starting to shine and the birds are singing shockingly early in the morning. Why all this? It is Spring in the so hemi and to welcome the changing of the seasons, we gathered a group of eco loving children and began our planting. The whole process was beautiful and we think Mother Nature was especially proud of us because She provided the perfect weather to get our seeds in the dirt. We sorted seeds, readied the greenhouse, tilled soil and got our hands really dirty all so that we can have tomato, rhubarb, corn, basil, oregano, watermelon and sunflowers in the coming months. Have a look at a few shots from the day.
