Last year I received some kid packs of seeds in the mail with something else, I don't remember what now but I held onto them so the boys could practice gardening this summer. To my surprise the seeds were organic & GMO free, SCORE! :) I knew the boys would love playing in the soil & watering them, I never realized just how much they would love watching the seeds grow!!!

Transferring soil from one pot to another, lol...
Kellan getting the water
Well watererd (overwatered) seeds!
A couple days later they sprouted!
A week later they are ready to be transferred to planters.
The boys ask every morning to see their plants & check them to see if they need water, usually not since they get so overwatered when they do. They comment on how much they grow & what each plant will eventually give them, cucumbers, tomatoes, & salad greens. I can't wait until the veggies appear & then are ready to be picked & eaten, I think the boys will be so excited! I also can't wait for next summer when we are in our house & have a real garden with lots of veggies!!!
The boys seem to have green thumbs so far :)
