Before I start this post I should say that my mother is an AMAZING gardener.  She would spend her entire life in the dirt if she could. Me, on the other hand, not so much. I would get too hot in the sun and burnt too easily to want to spend a lot of time outside. So when Quinn asked me to help plant the vegetable garden at the school, I was happy to help but had to call my mom about six times before I started.

After a lot of questions and some messy children I am happy to let all of you know that ADM now has a vegetable garden! We planted tomatoes, squash, peppers, and eggplant. One thing I learned in my Montessori training was the importance of including children in every-day activities, especially ones where they are able to see the product of their work. This is why I was so happy that I could include some of the Young Toddler students in the creation of our vegetable garden.

So far the plants are doing great! They are being watered and given love from all the students every time they are out in the back yard. I will continue to care for them and, hopefully, there will be some vegetables soon!
