I love finding innovative ways to keep kids moving. This week I am merging Tic Tac Toe Fitness and the Fitness Fortune Tellers to my lesson plans. The learning students are working on goal setting through jump roping. I have placed several “rest” stations around the fitness center to allow the students a break from jump rope skills. I found the Fitness Fortune Tellers on a the HPE Merritt PE blog. This blog is enjoyed by me. Plenty of great ideas. My Tic Tac Toe Fitness boards originated from Teachers Pay educators. They were created by Cap’n Pete. I must say I am not disappointed with my purchase.
Mixing the ground 2:1 with compost or composted manure provides extra nutrition and enriches the overall planting blend. I generally add one part of of peat to four parts of a potting soil-compost mix for my regular general box gardening soil recipe. Container gardening is a real place where one size doesn’t fit all.

I used a special potting mix designed for acid loving plant life when we potted our camellia, and I also used commercial mixes for a few of our other succulents and orchids. Adding water-absorbing polymers below the main ball holds water and keeps the pots adequately moist between waterings. This is done by using a product such as Soil-Moist or by opening up a baby diaper, and getting rid of and using the water absorbent material it includes. I find it helpful to wet the diaper then peel away the plastic and set the “stuffing” low in the pot, a few in . below where in fact the plant shall set.
It should be damp when you put it into the container. I also water the dirt in the bottom of the pot before I place the seed and remainder of the soil. This is especially important with tall small pots. You need to water the entire pot, otherwise, underneath shall dry and make it hard for the origins to grow and develop.
But this way, you don’t need to drown the roots to get drinking water to the bottom of the pot. And once it’s moist, it’s easy to keep it that way. After the containers are planted, soaking them well but slowly best works. When watering the first time, you can either underestimate or to over-water and drown the roots so I water slowly during the period of a couple of hours, a quart at a time in the top pots. Honestly, it’s a guessing game, but I water until I see a little of elope into the saucer under the pot and then not again for weekly.
Then I make sure to give each large pot at least a gallon of drinking water during the period of each week. The vacationing marker goes from pot to pot as I drinking water. Watering is easy when you get into a routine. Feeding pots grown up in containers is as important as watering them. I use specific vegetable foods formulated for each type of vegetable to increase the nutrients in appropriate amounts. Everything gets given the same day at once. Otherwise, I lose track and it’s really easy to overlook a few of the pots.
Since it’s easy to overfeed, I tend to give food to a remedy diluted by a third every other week. I mix the fertilizer based on the package directions and then dilute and feed according to package directions. I continue with my regular watering Then. We have window boxes edging our patio wall and they’re filled with annuals, perennials, an occasional herb, and miniature roses.
Over the course of the times of year we add vegetation to those that have completed blooming for the season and attended seed. Once it gets hot for the pansies and the ranunculus fade too, I’ll switch them out with bacopa, calabrachoa, snapdragons, and small mums. One of the things I find the most fun about pot gardens is the opportunity to add other vegetation to the mix for color and variety.
