Last Thursday my AppArts students and I sowed flax seed in the planters of my classroom's outdoor courtyard. After we had dug up the soil, we broadcast the seed like grass seed, raked them in and then the kids walked them in. The soil was so warm that some of the kids removed their shoes. When we came in on Tuesday after a long weekend, to our amazement, the seeds had already peeped through. Hopefully the plants will mature before the weather gets too hot out there.
