Nursery children learning to garden!

In Nursery, we love food! So we decided to grow our own cress heads. We followed instructions to plant the seeds but then had to keep watering them so they would grow. We looked like we had lots of green hair! Once it had grown, we made cress sandwiches and all enjoyed trying something new!
