Spuds in Tubs 2013: first growth

On returning from spring break, the students and staff were excited to the healthy growth that happened over the holidays. We have healthy strong plants started!

After all the classes get to see this first stage, we will be "hilling" the plants with another bag of soil. Two of the tubs are growing taller plants than the others and the students have all been speculating why that might be! Their thoughts include:
one tub is closer to the window so it got more sun
maybe one tub got more food than the others
maybe one tub got more water

Some of the kindergarten students did some close observations of the plants and noticed they were "hairy" and "fuzzy".
