Happy Vernal Equinox!
Did you manage to “see” the eclipse? We’re in the wrong place for it.
Today is a good day for a “week of” post. We made headway on our spring to do list.
Monday we hung up the bee houses, and Aidan put together the planter.
Bee built a hanging tiered water-er where the water flows from the top cup (in which a bean seed is sitting in water absorbent polymer) into the second cup (mustard seeds) and then into a third cup for collection.
She had quite a bit of polymer left over from the project so we started out beans seeds on the window with it as well.
Tuesday Pete and I bought dirt for the planter box and we started “Nature Quest” 2015. Three of us have colds, so we hit the easiest of trails- Catonsville’s “Trolley Trail 9.” Tessa found a millipede and a red backed salamander.
The frogs are singing:
Wednesday we put the soil in the planter and I realized I was one bag short. I started working on the April Calendar (yes, am ignoring the fact we’ve got a bit of March to get through).
Next I need to check to see what is happening in the homeschool group and plan for that. I also have a massive amount of documentation to write and a speech/paper to finish.
Bee’s radishes were looking radical! errr. radicle. (not sorry).
Thursday the beans were also growing.
Nothing much “Nature-y” happened Thursday. We all have colds so I cancelled a visit to the park and we did other stuff, like playing “No Stress Chess.”
Today it will be snowing and or raining all day.
This means, likely more board games and Netflix documentaries.
I also need to clean the bathrooms.
I think a picture montage of that might just be a little too wild for this blog.
