Biology: Planting Day

Today was planting day! Before planting our daffodil bulbs we compared them to other bulbs, measured their circumference and weight, and then dissected them to get a sense of what's going on inside. After learning that the bulb provides food for the growing flower bud, we decided to see whether bulb weight affects flower growth. We grouped the remaining bulbs (the ones we hadn't yet dissected) by weight and planted them in 3 separated areas. Over the next few months, we'll observe and measure their growth. Stay tuned...
