Planting Our Vegetable Garden-Jamie

We chose Friday because there was no wind or rain and we chose vegetables to plant because they are healthy and nutritious. First we passed all the plants around so we could chose which ones we wanted to plant. I chose tomatoes because they looked tall already, but when we arrived Mrs Agnew told us to look behind the tag and it said that it takes 16 weeks for them to grow big. Wow - that is a lot! 
Mrs Agnew told us to dig a little hole and flip the soil upside down and take it out, then put the seedling inside the dirt and make sure it is very cosy, snug up and very tight. 
After that we looked for worms. I found a yellow worm I thought it was a larva. Me and Frances put worms on our plants because worm pee is good for plants. Then we sprinkled egg shells on the plants all around the garden to stop the bugs eating our plants.

After that we were all exhausted from our hard work.We were all happy!๐Ÿ˜€
