This past week Red Butte Garden came to our classroom to introduce our plant unit. They generously gave us all of the materials (including the grow lights) for us to continue growing the seeds we planted. The seeds we were supplied are called Brassica Rapa, or Wisconsin Fast Plant. It was developed for use in the classroom. It completes it's life cycle in 40 days. Meaning we planted seeds last Thursday and by March sometime we will be harvesting seeds to use next year. This morning we were greeted with sprouts (even with 6 inches of snow on the ground).
Here are a few pictures from our adventure:
