Today we would like to invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual HSV Garden Challenge.
The heart of The HSV Garden Challenge is to spend time with your children, not show off a successful produce stand. We love the idea of being outside, getting dirty, and spending quality time with our homeschoolers explaining God’s wonderful creation!
Participation Rules … since we are a homeschool community here to encourage homeschoolers we are asking that only current homeschooling families participate. Please always link your posts back to our site so your homeschool friends can participate too!
- TODAY sponsored by Master Books: link up a blog post and let us know what your plans are for your garden.
(we define “garden” as any space where you are breaking ground and planting. So if you have a few herbs, a tomato bucket, or an acre of beans – just let us know).
The fun part of gardening is planning where, when, and what you’ll plant. Do you have a lesson to go along with your garden? What books do you want to read together?
** Please know – your garden progresses when & how you want it to not by our schedule. **
Winner, The Full Circle Gardener
- Thursday April 26th sponsored by Apologia. Link up & share your progress! Did you “break ground” or still growing starter plants? Are the kids excited, do you see any buds, or are you fighting army worms?
- Thursday May 31st sponsored by Maestro Classics. Link up & share more progress! Are the plants taller than your kids, are you harvesting, what do your kids like best/worst about gardening? What are you reading to go along with this lesson? What is/was your favorite recipe from your garden?
