what should our preschool plant? help!
I work at an early childhood school in Seattle with two year olds and am interested in gardening with the little ones. We have a narrow growing space up against the building and thought our class would love to get out there with some gardening tools and help us dig out the old plants, turn the soil, plant, and watch things grow. It�s a tricky area to grow because it is a small area against the building and only gets a bit of morning sun and then it is mostly shaded. We�ve been doing research online and went to the nursery to find out about the best things to grow there, but are feeling overwhelmed. Do you have a suggestion for some (hearty) things to plant there that would be successful? We would love both veggies and flowers but know those both require some sun. We are open to anything but are looking for a couple specific good ideas (maybe 2-3 veggies and 2-3 flowers or other plants?) that might work. Any advice you can give would be so appreciated!
