Plant Your Garden and Watch it Grow

One of my nascent projects is a vegetable garden in a little school for pastoral kids.  Since we live so high up in the atmosphere, nothing really grows besides sheep and potatoes.  As an experiment, I built a little cold frame at my house and planted a bunch of seeds, and not everything died!  The other day, my host mom and I transplanted some cabbage, onion, and carrots into a tiny garden.  I'm hoping that with more care and some inside windowsill germination, we can have better survival rates and get some lettuce and beets going.  

If the little starts aren't clobbered by a hailstorm, we'll have the makings of some darn fine local coleslaw.
