I am going to be a gardener tomorrow, helping seven 2nd grade students plant seeds. We are going to grow string beans. With our bag of dirt, individual pots and a few shovels and spades we will walk to our designated area. I will let each fill their pot with dirt, add their seeds, cover and sprinkle with water and place a marker with their name on it. For sure, I will be murmuring a quiet prayer that string beans will appear. I know they will be monitoring their spots each day, to see if it needs watering and watching for any sign of string beans. Once they are ready for picking, Mrs. Merrily will supervise the students. Her plan is to cook them and serve them to the class. I will be looking forward to this tasting.
This is a first for me and I hope it is enjoyable and a learning experience for all of us.
