Ive been sitting on GardenScienceForKids.com for months now. I think i wanna do a kids video series with puppets after seeing the fun series adafruit put out. 2 questions:

1) Anyone have resources for making ?

2) what kind of characters would be awesome?

Im definitely doing a robot inspired by the from Silent Running. Also probably some ladybugs.

I just feel like Tea Jay's Garden doesn't say anything useful and a Gateless Garden implies a place for everyone and an open resource for evidence based Garden info.

Following up on my seed starting special i decided to do an overview of stepping up your plant starts after they've gotten their first true leaves.


Just sent off a soil test. Its probably fine, but i havent had one done at this garden yet. The only nutrient I'm slightly worried about is iron because ive had some yellowing between the veins of my beans, but i haven't seen it in anything else so it may just be that spot.
