We let our #layinghens free range the backyard, but they get tempted by some of the stuff growing in self-watering containers in the Learn & Grow test garden. Here, they got busted going for the #nasturtiums and Blueberry made a break for it. They are still molting, so they look pretty scraggly, which makes it even funnier #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org
After weeding this container of all the grass that sprouted from dumping the dirty water from the #layinghens into it, which turned out to have all kinds of seeds from their organic food in it, we've left behind the #peas that sprouted. They can use the #dwarfbananatree growing in this self-watering container as their trellis, in the Learn & Grow test garden #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org
Starting another #celery plant for the Learn & Grow test garden. How-to: cut off the stalks of a store-bought celery heart and put them in a glass of water, like flowers in a vase. Keep the glass of stalks in the refrigerator. Put the base in a shallow dish of water and refill it as needed over time until new little stalks stand up in the middle and new roots are growing out the bottom. This little baby has been growing for just over a week and you can see the leaves of the new stalks growing up in the center #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org
The thing about recycling dirty #layinghen water by using it to water the #dwarfbananatree growing in this self-watering container in the Learn & Grow test garden is that any seeds from their organic chicken scratch that was in the mucky water will sprout in the container. We now have a grain grass of some kind and peas sprouting around the bottom of the banana tree #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org
