PLANTING SEEDS

With the little bit of warm weather we had last week, the girls and I decided it was time to plant some seeds indoors. We found these great seed planting kits at the local hardware store. Banana picked out a kit for planting spring bulbs.

Boo and I decided to plant our very favorite - Petunias!! I spend so much money on planting Petunias every year, that I thought this would be a much more economical way to still get lots of flowers without paying lots of money!!

These kits are just the best - they come with a compressed disc of soil that expands when they are watered, and are held together by a small mesh pouch that you can plant right in the ground.

It was a lot of fun to watch the soil "grow" after we watered it.

And the top shelf in our sunny school room corner has been made into a mini-greenhouse. We will keep you posted on the growth of our little seedlings!
