Vegetable Seed Balls on a Rainy Day December 29, 2009

Filed under: 2009-2010 School Year — gardenexplorer1 @ 7:52 am

One day in December, the garden was simply too wet and muddy to take Mrs. Manguil’s and Hawke’s class out into the garden. So, we gardened inside, embedding broccoli, carrot and collard seeds into balls of natural clay and compost, for placing in the garden at another time. Seedballs are can an effective way to plant a garden without disturbing the soil, though we have never tried making them with vegetable seeds. We’ll let them dry and harden, and in January, we’ll bring them out to the garden to see how they grow!
