Nursery field trip

Today our Lutheran Homeschool group went on a field trip to a local nursery. It was very interesting and I think that the children really enjoyed it.

Here we were learning about grafting trees. We were able to see the scar on the tree where it had been graphed.
This was the machine that planted all of the little seeds in to the flat so that the seed could germinate.
This is a photo of my oldest son looking at one of the carnivorous plants that they sold at the nursery. He was very excited to see one up close and personal after he had read about them this summer.

We had just finished up the apologia botany book so it was really neat for the kids to see so many different variety of plants growing.
