garden plot: planting seeds

Today we went to our garden plot to check it out and see if we could start planting. We were happy to see that the soil looked good and found worms in the dirt. We watered and played around with a hoe. We decided to start with some bee friendly flowers and parsley. Next up is sugar peas. We covered our seeds with dirt and then straw to keep moisture in. We met some friendly master gardeners and talked about what to plant when and came home with some great info. I think Emma Clover is excited. I know that I am. ^_^

We love to visit the Lake Merritt gardens and today we saw five turtles in the big pond and two mallards in the smaller one. It really is a great place to hang out with little kids.
