Our flowers have been pollinated, and if they weren't plastic then that means the plant could make seeds. But then, how do the seeds get around? Mrs. Adams class braved the snowy weather today to count acorns in our raised garden beds. The further the bed was from the tree, the fewer acorns we found in each bed. The kiddos all agreed that they would want to be in the bed with the fewest acorns - it might mean less acorn friends, but a better chance of growing up into a tree. Of course, most of what we found were lids, so there must be some pretty happy squirrels around Tritt!
We found over 300 acorns in the bed directly under the tree, over 100 in the one next to it, then 74, then 24, and then fewer than 10 in the furthest garden bed. And then we played for a couple of minutes, because snow.
